Edie is the Managing Director and a Solicitor at Advocates for Animals, the first UK law firm dedicated to animal protection.
In this episode, we chat to Edie about representing The Humane League UK in the up and coming court case challenging DEFRA. The judicial review case will see Advocates for Animals argue that fast-growing chicken breeds are illegal under current animal welfare laws. We also talk through their enforcement work with Animal Equality, another first-of-its-kind case in the UK.
Edie talks to us about how using the law to protect animals is a neglected area of work and why she wants to see more advocates utilising this tool as an effective tool for animal advocacy.
