Legislation Discussion forum sessions

Our Discussion Forums offer veterinary & animal welfare professionals a platform to engage with, discuss and reflect on some of the most pressing and controversial animal welfare issues. Over the years we have covered important legislation topics such as: Animal establishment licensing, The Animal Welfare Act, and Unnecessary suffering – a legal perspective. We have highlighted a few of our legislation sessions below.

Don’t forget to download our reflective learning guide to help you get the most out of our sessions. For some of our videos we have put together a list of questions for you to consider whilst watching, so be sure to read the video descriptions for these.
