Animal Rights

The Animal Rights Team at Goldsmith Chambers was founded by a group of members with a long-standing commitment to –  and expertise in –  animal rights.  The team works closely with NGOs, animal protection groups and individuals.

Members of the Animal Rights Team have extensive experience of judicial review applications, and can assist and advise from the earliest stages of proceedings through to full hearing and appeals in the higher courts.

Our Animal Rights experts also specialise in advising on and conducting private prosecutions, a vital tool in enforcing animal welfare standards.

The Animal Rights Team has close connections to ALAW (the UK Centre for Animal Law), with one of our members being a co-founder, and numerous barristers on the team being members and contributors.

The Animal Rights Team’s recent work includes research with the Non-Human Rights Project on personhood, and advising animal protection and campaign groups on private prosecutions.

Please contact Neil Dinsdale or Jordan Lloyd to discuss any aspect of your case, however complex, to explore how Goldsmith Animal Rights Group members can advise and assist you.

You can follow the team on Instagram @goldsmith_animalrights and on twitter @GoldsmithAnimal.  The team also has a LinkedIn page – Goldsmith Chambers Animal Rights Team.
