It Needn’t Be Dog Eat Dog: The Application of Mediation and Collaborative Practice to Animal Conflicts
Mediation and collaborative practice are two successful processes in which parties in conflict engage, voluntarily, in a safe, neutral environment, to work out their differences. Presented by leading experts in this relatively new field, this event will explore the application of mediation and collaborative practice techniques to the resolution of animal law disputes. After introductory remarks on animal law and alternative dispute resolution, the program will focus on a series of hypotheticals that describe typical disputes involving animals and the panel will discuss how those disputes might be resolved using ADR or in litigation.
