Meg Good is a PhD Candidate at the University of Tasmania Faculty of Law and the Tasmanian Co-ordinator for the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel. After graduating from a combined arts/law degree with first class honours in law, Meg received an Elite Research Scholarship to undertake a thesis in environmental law in 2011.
In addition to her research, Meg works as a lecturer and tutor, teaching primarily in areas of public law. In 2013, she voluntarily created and co-ordinated Tasmania’s first animal law conference, with the assistance of a 2012 Voiceless Grant. In recognition of her contributions to environmental protection and teaching, Meg won the Southern Cross Young Achiever Awards 2012/2013. She has also recently been announced as the winner of the NELA 2012 Environmental Law Essay Competition.
Meg will present at the Hobart Law Lecture Series on Monday 29 April at the University of Tasmania. She will explore how different the Australian animal law landscape would look if it had a bill of animal rights, demonstrating how much the current framework falls short of safeguarding animal rights.
