Viveca Morris is an Associate Research Scholar in Law and the Executive Director of the Law, Ethics & Animals Program at Yale Law School.

Morris founded the Law, Ethics & Animals Program in partnership with Faculty Co-Directors Doug Kysar and Jonathan Lovvorn. Her research focuses on the legal, moral, and scientific questions raised by humanity’s treatment of non-human creatures, and on how insights from multiple disciplines, the power of storytelling, and the force of law can together be leveraged to address industrialized abuses of animals, people and the environment. Morris co-hosts and co-produces the Yale University podcast "When We Talk About Animals,” which features in-depth interviews with leading thinkers about animals and what it means to be human.
