A project of Michigan State University, the site includes a web library of animal-related legal and policy materials. A favorite go to for U.S. researchers for comprehensive and up to date information, this site now has an international collection.
What we like: The topics tab. From animal fighting to zoos, researchers can search dozens of topics and filter them further by country. Or simply enter the country to find the entirety of legal and policy documents available on the site.
Established to “encourage, at the international level, the development of legal scholarship and advocacy skills on behalf of animals” this nonprofit institution has developed AnimalLaw.com to assist attorneys, law students, and other animal advocates in their research.

What we like: Take Action Thursday. For those wishing to make a more direct change for animals the International Institute for Animal Law, through AnimalLaw.com issues regular postings for how animal advocates can actively engage in specific issues.
Started just this summer, the Global Animal Law Project offers an innovative new concept in animal law, in which visitors can browse a vast database of animal protection laws throughout the world.
