The environmental law program brought Cara Hunt to UVic. But she has ended up dedicating her time on campus to protecting and advancing the rights of animals.
"Animal law is the pre-eminent social justice issue of our time," says Hunt. "More people are going vegan and vegetarian every day." Animal law is any legal issue, legislation or case law that relates to animals and their interests.
Hunt, 35, graduates with numerous awards and scholarships. She sits on the executive of the animal law section with the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association, and she is a past executive director of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.
