Details

A detailed discussion of Dave Morris and Helen Steel’s “McLibel” case (longest in the history of the English court system), in relation to the rights of animals, cruel common farming practices, its unique legal context, and the impact of the holding on animal law in general. In addition, this essay, written by David J. Wolfson in 1999, also exposes and explores the contradiction by which standard farming practice can be found to be cruel while legal pursuant to an anti-cruelty statute?
