Hyderabad gets India’s first Centre for Animal Law

HYDERABAD: The Nalsar University of Law inaugurated country's first Centre for Animal Law in the city on Friday wherein students can conduct research and advocate animal protection rights.

The centre was inaugurated by union minister for women and child welfare, Maneka Gandhi, who is also an environmentalist and animal protection crusader.

The Humane Society International/India will work in association with the university to steer and coordinate the activities of the centre.

Referring to several examples related to animals, Gandhi stressed upon the need to have better laws in place to protect animals. "While fighting various cases in courts, we spend a lot of time in researching. The Centre at Nalsar can emerge as a resource group where gap studies for such cases can be conducted by students," said Gandhi, urging the university to conduct a critical study on China's impact on India's animals.
