10th Annual Animal Law Review Symposium: ‘Animal Law and Environmental Law: Parallels and Synergies’

In this presentation, Professor Abate will draw on lessons from history, politics, and law to illustrate how animal law can learn from environmental law and how the two fields can work together to secure mutual gains. Randall Abate is the inaugural Rechnitz Family and Urban Coast Institute Endowed Chair in Marine and Environmental Law and Policy, and a Professor in the Department of Political Science and Sociology, at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. He also serves as the Director of the Institute for Global Understanding at Monmouth, and teaches courses in domestic and international environmental law, climate justice, constitutional law, and animal law. Professor Abate joined the Monmouth faculty in 2018 with 24 years of full-time law teaching experience at six U.S. law schools. He has published six books and more than thirty law journal articles and book chapters on environmental and animal law topics, with a recent emphasis on climate change law and justice.
