The Australian Law Students’ Association (ALSA) has been running its national conference annually since 1979. The conference attracts law students from across Australia and overseas, including New Zealand, Singapore and England. ALSA was awarded a $5,000 grant to enable an animal law legal education forum to take place as part of the overall conference in 2010 in order to promote animal protection through law reform. The animal law forum attracted 150 participants, and speakers included Lesley Petrie, Flinders University; Katrina Sharman, Voiceless; Jed Goodfellow, RSPCA SA; Graeme McEwen, Barristers Animal Welfare Panel, Victoria; and Dr. Deborah Kelly, Manager of the Animal Welfare Unit, Department of Environmental Heritage.
