Who We Are: Your University of Toronto, Animal Justice

Animal Justice, as Canada's only animal law organization, leads the legal fight for animals. Animal Justice's lawyers argue on behalf of animals in court, work to pass strong new animal protection laws, and push to prosecute animal abusers. 

The University of Toronto, Animal Justice club seeks to help inform the student legal community about animal legal issues and connect burgeoning animal advocates with the growing animal law legal community.
