Animal Law is a subject which is growing rapidly. The world faces severe threats in the forms of climate crisis, biodiversity losses, pandemics, and zoonosis, and ethical considerations in relation to law and the protection of sentient beings other than humans, is of pressing importance. Animal law draws on multidisciplinary perspectives.

The legal system within the Nordic countries, and the law regarding animals, provides significant and well-developed precedents and ideas which are valuable to researchers and legislators worldwide. This is the first book to closely examine the similarities and differences in the legal thinking and reality in across the Nordic countries, in relation to animals.

The book is a unique and valuable a reference textbook for legal scholars, judges, animal protection authorities, lawyers, and others students and researchers interested in the topic. The book also includes a chapter on future prospects about the protection of animals from negative human impact and de lege ferenda (a basis for future law) arguments.
