OBE LLB (London)

Reader (Scholarship)



Mike Radford joined the School in September 2000 from the University of East Anglia. His interests focus on law and the exercise of power in two distinct areas: government and public administration; and the treatment of animals. In 1992 he established the first course in animal welfare law to be offered by a law school in the UK (and possibly Europe) and he has subsequently established an international reputation in this field.  Mike has extensive experience of working with politicians, officials, NGOs, animal welfare scientists and veterinary surgeons in the development of policy and law.  He has previously served as a trustee of the PDSA, a member of the RCVS Animal Welfare Science, Ethics, and Law Committee, the Companion Animal Welfare Council, the Dog Advisory Council, and was a founder member of the Animal Science, Ethics and Law Veterinary Association.  Mike is presently a trustee of Dogs Trust, the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare, the Humane Slaughter Association, and the UK Centre for Animal Law.  Mike was appointed OBE in 2008 for services to animal welfare law.
