Companion animals and the law

The NSW Young Lawyers Animal Law Committee put this guide together.

The Law Society of New South Wales Young Lawyers Animal Law Committee has put together a fantastic, plain language guide to Companion Animal Law in New South Wales.

It is great for pet owners but a nice refresher for veterinarians and veterinary students.

The Animal Law Committee has done some fantastic work and you can view their resources here.

You can also download a PDF of the guide here.

Topics covered include the legal framework in NSW as it pertains to animals, general requirements for animal ownership, buying animals, pets and apartments, assistance animals and pets and family law.

This is a really well put together, easy-to-read resource for those from a non-legal background.
