John Mancy was awarded a grant of $15,000 for the ‘Australian Animal Protection Law Journal’ (AAPLJ) which is a scholarly, peer-reviewed, bi-annual legal journal, and the first of its kind in Australia. The Voiceless grant went towards the publication and distribution of the journal, which is intended to serve as a source of information about current developments in animal protection law, to be used by members of the Australian legal profession. A further Voiceless Grant in 2013 will soon see the development of a dedicated website for the AAPLJ.
