Legal Advocacy

Legal advocacy is critical in catalyzing and empowering government and communities to undertake action on their own behalf to protect non–human animals. We use strategic public interest litigation and legal advocacy to move the justiciability of non-human animal rights from theory to practice.

Farmed Animals

LAPA utilizes law, science and policy to advocate for the reduce of exploitation of farmed animals (chicken, pigs, donkeys) in commercial farming systems and to counter the relating consumer protection, environmental pollution of CAFOs, animal welfare issues that are incidental to CAFOs.


LAPA protects endangered species by supporting legal interventions that address and strengthen law enforcement’s response to wildlife crime and illegal exploitation of wildlife.

Habitats and Ecosystems

The development, implementation and interpretation of laws relating to the protection of spaces animals live in are protected from challenges like human wildlife conflict, loss of habitats to infrastructural developments and pollution from industries.
