Description:
With its intricate 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? Professor Abate, examines the experiences of academics, advocates, and legal professionals from the environmental and animal law fields. Drawing on lessons from history, politics, and the law, the 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. This panel presentation examines some of the key topics on lawsuits addressing deceptive advertising and humane washing and challenges to plant-based meat and milk as avenues for enhanced animal protection, as well as how the doctrine of regulatory avoidance from Massachusetts v. EPA may provide a new pathway to challenge USDA inaction in efforts to enhance the welfare of animals in agriculture.
