On the 11th and 12th April, the students of the Master in Animal Law and Society had the pleasure to attend Prof. Dr. iur. Jean Pierre Marguenaud’s classes. The Professor of Private Law and Criminal Sciences is the editor of the first Code de l’animal, which includes all French juridical text related to animals. During his classes, the Dr. Marguenaud exposed the history of the animal law in France focusing on the juridical status of animals on the French legal system. Especially after the modification of the Code Civil in 2015, which grants animals the status of sentient beings. As the Dr. Marguenaud says: Vive le Droit Animalier!
