WCC; 2004 Classroom

With layers of international, federal, and state protections, environmental law is more established than animal law. In his book, What Can Animal Law Learn From Environmental Law?, Randall Abate, Assistant Dean of Environmental Law Studies at George Washington University, draws from history, politics, and law to examine how environmental law’s successes in areas such as enforcement, public trust doctrine, 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 address themes and cases from the book to illustrate how the two fields can work together to secure mutual gains.

Lunch provided.
