Michigan State University College of Law professor David Favre received the title of Lifetime Member of the Abolitionist Institute for Animals at the World Congress on Bioethics and Animal Rights.
Convened by the IAA in partnership with the Federal University of Pernambuco and Federal University of Bahai, the third annual congress featured scholars and activists from around the world. The congress was held Aug. 22-25 in Recife, Brazil.
"I am very pleased to have my work acknowledged by the most legally sophisticated animal law group in South America," Favre said. "I hope to continue to share ideas with them and learn about the Brazilian legal system."
Favre, named the Nancy Heathcote Professor of Property and Animal Law at MSU College of Law, has been a member of the MSU Law faculty since 1976.
