Training workshop for Law lecturers, Winter 2019
As part of our teaching outreach mission, we will be inviting up to five Law lecturers from other universities to Cambridge for a five-day workshop in order to share with them all the materials from our Animal Rights Law and to help them design a similar Animal Rights Law course at their home university. Attendees will be full-time Law lecturers at a European university which is committed to offering an Animal Rights Law course to their students in the following academic year.
