What Can Animal Law Learn From Environmental Law? 2nd Edition (Jess Beaulieu)

With its intricate layers of international, federal, and state protections, environmental law is more established than animal law. Yet, animal law faces many of the same legal and strategic challenges that environmental law faced in seeking to establish a more secure foothold in the United States and abroad. As such, animal law stands to gain valuable insights from the lessons of the environmental law movement.

In the Second Edition of this book, Professor Randall S. Abate has assembled an experienced team of academics, advocates, and legal professionals from the environmental and animal law fields to examine the experiences of these two fields. Jess Beaulieu is one of those contributing authors and through her chapter examines how wildlife can be protected through the Public Trust Doctrine, and more specifically, what animal law can learn from Juliana v. United States.
