University of Sherbrooke Faculty of Law, Room A7-235
Workshop with professeures Valéry Giroux, professor at the University of Montréal Faculty of Law, and Alexandra Popovici, professor at the University of Sherbrooke Faculty of Law.
Since Pythagoras’s antiquity, philosophers have questioned our moral obligations towards animals. Today, more and more activists and ethicists claim rights for sentient animals other than humans. What about jurists? Have they brought justice to animals? By stating that animal are not things, could it be that the Civil Code of Québec offers new tools to bring this justice forward?
