Animal Law and Environmental Law: Exploring the Connections and Synergies

Category: Seminar

Environmental law, with its intricate layers of international, federal, state, and local laws, is more established than its animal counterpart. Yet, animal law faces many of the same legal and strategic challenges that environmental law faced in seeking to establish a more secure foothold, both in the U.S. and abroad.
For his new book, What Can Animal Law Learn From Environmental Law?, editor Randall Abate brought together academics, advocates, and legal professionals to examine the very different histories of environmental and animal law as well as the legal and policy frameworks that bridge the divide between the fields. Join us to celebrate the release of this important volume and hear from authors about the critical issues discussed. Drawing on lessons from history, politics, and law, panelists will examine how environmental law’s successes and shortcomings can inform animal law, and how the two fields can work together for mutual gain in the future. They will also explore important intersections between the two fields, such as concentrated animal feeding operations, agriculture and climate change, the legal valuation of nature, and other critical topics.
