Charity dinner with guest of honor Peter Singer - 25th June 2012, Gray's Inn Hall, London
Peter Singer, philosopher and author, will be speaking at a special ALAW charity fundraising dinner at the prestigious Gray's Inn Hall in London addressing the topic Animals, Ethics and the Law. This is a unique opportunity to hear one of the world's best known ethical philosophers, whose lectures and writings never fail to both inspire and challenge.

Peter Singer is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University and Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. His book, Animal Liberation, was described by the Guardian as 'probably the single most influential document in the history of recent movements concerned with animal welfare'. 

He has also written or co-authored other books on topics relating to the treatment of animals such as 'In defense of Animals' and 'The ethics of what we eat', 'Animal Philosophy' and 'The Great Ape Project: Equality Beyond Humanity.' Other publications addressing practical ethics and international development and poverty are also international best sellers. 

The event will be chaired by Sir Rabinder Singh (The Hon. Mr. Justice Singh), a High Court Judge who was previously a barrister at Matrix Chambers specializing in human rights cases.
Tickets are £70 per person. Catering will be vegetarian/vegan. All profits will go to support ALAW's education work.
