NALSAR University of Law, ranked amongst the top three national law universities in India, has established India’s first Centre for Animal Law. Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi, Hon’ble Union Minister for Women and Child Development, inaugurated the centre. Humane Society International/India will work with NALSAR University to steer and coordinate the activities of the centre.

N.G. Jayasimha, managing director of HSI/India, has been appointed as the Honorary Director of the Centre. “Today is a historic day for India and its animals,” he said. “We thank the Board of NALSAR and of course, the Vice Chancellor Professor Faizan Mustafa, who has made this centre happen. We hope that the Centre for Animal Law will be the first of many institutions dedicated to the study of animal issues and animal law in India and elsewhere.”

The Centre will create curriculum on animal welfare laws, including developing topics for research. It will also conduct workshops on animal laws and animal welfare issues with judicial magistrates, animal welfare advocates, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders in the government.
