Animal rights group Voiceless has awarded a $5000 grant to the Australian Law Students' Association to help raise awareness of animal rights protection amongst law students at their 2010 conference.

The grant was awarded to ALSA at the 2009 Voiceless awards ceremony held last week at The Mint in Sydney.

The purpose of the grant is to help ALSA establish an animal rights-focused forum which will take place at its annual conference to be held next July. The forum is aimed at promoting awareness of the animal rights movement amongst law students.

The forum, tentatively titled "Building Better Protections for Animal Rights", will feature prominent speakers from the animal rights movement, including a presentation by Voiceless.

The forum will be one of a number of Australian Legal Education Forums which take place at the conference each year.

Animal rights has been a hot topic for ALSA in recent times, also being the subject of its 2009 Kirby Cup competition.

ALSA's 2010 conference will be held between 12 and 18 July 2010 in Adelaide. It is expected to attract up to 600 law students from universities across Australia.
