Since 2007, the Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series has travelled across eight cities, featuring nine international keynote speakers and animal law academics from across Australia. In 2018, the Lecture Series will be reformatted with the intention of expanding out to an international audience, discussing topical animal law issues in a dynamic online format.
The Lecture Series has shone a light on topics such as factory farming, ag-gag legislation, hunting and animals in politics.
In addition, the series has over the years hosted a number of high profile lawyers and public figures including The Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG, Her Excellency Professor Marie R Bashir AD CVO and Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission.
