What Can Animal Law Learn From Environmental Law?
The Animal Law Discussion Group is excited to announce that we will be hosting Professor Randall Abate at the Law Faculty for a lecture on the parallels and synergies between animal law and environmental law. Please join us in the Law Faculty Boardroom from 2:30-3:30 PM on Wednesday, June 8th for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion and refreshments!
With its intricate layers of international, federal, and state protections, environmental law is more established than animal law. In What Can Animal Law Learn From Environmental Law? (ELI Press, 2d ed., 2020), Professor Abate has assembled an experienced team of 36 academics, advocates, and legal professionals from the environmental and animal law fields to examine the experiences of these two fields. Drawing on lessons from history, politics, and law, the 29-chapter book examines how environmental law’s successes in several key areas such as enforcement, impact assessments, and international law protections can help propel animal law’s objectives and how the two fields can work together on topics such as climate change and food law and policy. This presentation will first address some of the key themes of the book’s coverage. It will then provide case studies to illustrate how animal law can learn from environmental law and how the two fields can work together to secure mutual gains.
