Monmouth University Professor Randall Abate will moderate an online panel on May 12 exploring the themes from the second edition of his 2015 book, What Can Animal Law Learn from Environmental Law? (Environmental Law Institute Press, forthcoming May 2020). The webinar, hosted by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), will run from noon to 1:30 p.m.
The session is free and open to the public but registration is required by May 8. Click here to register or for more information.
As editor of the book, Abate 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 and shortcomings can inform animal law, and how the two fields can work together to secure mutual gains in the future.
How can animal law learn from environmental law in using creative administrative law theories to align enforcement with express protections? What role does wildlife protection play in mitigating climate change? How can state false advertising statutes be used to combat food industry practices that are simultaneously harmful to animals, human health, and the environment? Join the ELI, expert contributing author panelists, and Abate to explore these issues and more in this interactive workshop.
