The Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics is a world-class centre of academic excellence dedicated to pioneering ethical perspectives on animals through academic research, teaching, and publication. The Centre consists of an international fellowship of academics drawn from both the humanities and the sciences.
Appointment as a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics is offered only once to successful individuals within their lifetime, and appointment is by invitation or nomination only. Only a small proportion of those nominated are eventually selected. The process of selection is rigorous, painstaking, and frequently lengthy.
Appointment as a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics is a prestigious recognition of Associate Professor Alex Bruce's outstanding contribution to the field of animal ethics and research.
Alex teaches and researches in Animal Law, and his text Animal Law in Australia: An Integrated Approach (LexisNexis Butterworths, 2012) is one of Australia's first Animal Law textbooks studied by students of Animal Law both in Australia and internationally.
