Several honored speakers were there to bid farewell to the sixteen students of the 2013/2014 academic year: the Director of the Master herself, Prof. Dr. Teresa Giménez-Candela, Dr. Andrew Rowan, the CEO of the Humane Society International, and Prof. Xavier Manteca, from the UAB Faculty of Veterinary. Their words gave encouragement to the students to never give up on their careers and the pursuit of their goals.
Amongst tears of joy and emotional moments some students also had the chance to talk about their experiences during the past academic year and share their dreams for the future of Animal Law. Expressing their thoughts were Tisa Kosem from Slovenia, Nicole Batista Pereira from Brazil, Sara Hébrard, a veterinarian from Spain, and Inês de Sousa Real, a lawyer from Portugal.
