Research Centre for Animal Rights and Animal Welfare Law

In the field of animal rights and animal welfare law, there is a conspicuous lack of high-quality legal literature. The Beck Online database, which is mainly used by the judiciary, lists for example two publications on sect. 4 Animal Welfare Act ("papers on the subject") focused on this provision. They are the only ones that judges and prosecutors will come across when dealing with the interpretation of this central norm. This shortcoming is to be remedied.

IGMR

Institute for Information, Health and Medical Law

The IGMR was established in 1998 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Bremen. The Institute concerns itself with legal science, practice and policy issues of the regulation of health and information law. The central concern of the Institute is the intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary development of an approach responding to the challenges of a modern information society.
