''Cut the Dog in Half': Resolving Animal Law Disputes Through the Use of Alternative Dispute Resolution' by Michael Kaiser in (2014) 15 Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution 515 comments
The discipline of animal law continues to grow. Consequently, the need for methods to resolve conflicts in this arena also continues to grow. In this article, Michael Kaiser addresses mediating custody disputes involving animals, mediating disputes involving laboratory testing of animals, and mediating disputes involving allegations of veterinary malpractice. In all three sections Mr. Kaiser outlines methodologies to address, and practical solutions to, these conflicts, eschewing more absolutist positions and arguments. Mr. Kaiser demonstrates that when approached properly, all sides have something to gain from the use of alternative dispute resolution to address animal law conflicts.
