Call for Submissions

Apply to speak at the
2024 Canadian Animal Law Conference 

Hosted by Animal Justice at Toronto Metropolitan University, Toronto, Canada
Friday, September 27 - Sunday, September 29, 2024

Send us your proposals!

Deadline: Friday, March 22, 2024, midnight Eastern Time 

Topics: Topics should relate to animal law and advocacy. This may include ideas for legislative reform, litigation strategies, law enforcement, public policy initiatives, education, new books, and historical or philosophical studies. Our primary focus is on Canada and North America, but international topics are also welcome.
Who we’re looking for:
Scholars, practitioners, advocates, and students with passion for and expertise in animal law.

Format: Most presentations will be grouped in panels of two to four speakers, with each speaker allocated 15-20 minutes. We love getting proposals for fully-formed panels organized around a common theme, although you’re also welcome to submit an individual proposal. We welcome proposals for traditional academic paper presentations, debates, workshops, and other non-traditional formats. The event is fully in-person, so remote presentations aren’t possible.

  • Abstract & presentation title, maximum 150 words. Panel proposals should include a panel description, plus abstracts of up to 150 words per panelist. (Word file only.)

  • Biography, maximum 150 words. (Word file only.)

  • CV, maximum two pages. (Word or PDF file.)

  • Headshot. Photos will be posted on the conference website if a proposal is accepted. They will not be used to evaluate submissions. (JPEG file only.) 

Registration: Presenters must still register for the conference. Limited need-based funding may be available.

Student conference: There will be a separate Student Conference on Friday, September 27, 2024. Please monitor the Conference website for updates on speaking opportunities.
