Animal Law Clinic

Animal Law Clinic

Legal advice is provided through face-to-face consultations at the Animal Law Clinic (‘ALC’) which operates in Victoria. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide legal advice by telephone or email. The ALC is a joint initiative of Lawyers for Animals and Fitzroy Legal Service. The ALC provides free legal advice on matters relating to animals where the client’s interests are likely to coincide with those of the animal(s) concerned. This can include companion animal offences, ownership disputes, animal activism and many other matters relating to animal welfare.

The ALC only operates by appointment on Wednesday evenings at Fitzroy Legal Service, 126 Moor St, Fitzroy, Victoria. If you live in Victoria and wish to make an appointment at the ALC, please contact Fitzroy Legal Service on (03) 9419 3744.

If you live outside Victoria or are otherwise seeking a referral for legal advice from a non-fee-charging or private lawyer, please feel free to contact Lawyers for Animals via email: enquiries@lawyersforanimals.org.au.

Fishing

The use of commercial trawling nets is an extremely cruel means of fishing and an environmental disaster due to the impact on the ocean floor.

Though rarely acknowledged, fish suffer. Their writhing bodies and flapping gills are a desperate plea for the oxygen they breathe from water (rather than air).

Governments now understand the massive damage done to marine ecology, but there must be equal consideration for fish suffering.
