The Lacey Act as a model for wildlife trade legislation

How can and should the trade in wildlife be regulated? In this article, a group of legal researchers take a closer look at the United States Lacey Act. This legislation prohibits the possession of wildlife that has been illegally harvested in, or illegally traded from, anywhere in the world, and it has been viewed by some observers as a potential model for other countries. Analysing the Lacey Act from an international perspective, the authors explore implications of this law and the possibility that other countries could adapt it for their own legal systems, concluding that it does have the potential to be used as a model for legislation in different jurisdictions.
