Stanford Journal of Animal Law & Policy (SJALP)

(The Journal of Animal Law and Policy will be going on hiatus beginning Fall 2014.  We will continue to have this website accessible.  We wish to thank our authors, and everyone for their readership.)

The Journal of Animal Law & Policy was founded in August 2007 to provide a high-quality, widely accessible forum for the publication and discussion of animal law scholarship. Although contributors to the journal may express strong opinions about the legal and policy frameworks governing the status and treatment of nonhuman animals, the journal itself welcomes a diversity of views and neither espouses nor endorses any particular approach to or theory of animal rights and/or welfare.
