The death of factory farming places animal agriculture in the cross hairs. The factory farming of animals has become a global catastrophic problem that many believe can, and should be, eliminated. Environmentalists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and advocates for animal, labor, and human rights, as well as several high-profile investors, are now bringing a concerted focus to hastening the end of factory farming and perhaps even replacing animal agriculture altogether. In this multifaceted effort, law not only matters but is deeply intertwined with nearly every element of the strategic approaches being employed. These include legislation, litigation, regulation, innovation, and education (on many fronts). The Harvard Animal Law & Policy Program hosts this interactive session with representatives who speak directly to each of these strategies in an actively moderated conversation.
