Educational Outreach and Support
Advancing International Animal Protections
Through our outreach and support, CALS provides capacity-building assistance to partners in primarily developing countries who address animal welfare, protection, and conservation, with a focus on education and legal practice. This includes partnering with relevant NGOs, universities, advocates, and attorneys who are interested in developing animal law opportunities abroad.
Our faculty and staff have been invited to speak all over the world on the importance of animal law and how advocates can develop animal law education and advocacy in their home countries. Understanding that we exponentially increase our effectiveness by equipping animal advocates with the tools necessary to educate others, our “train the trainer” approach has seen many of our international Animal Law LLM graduates be transformed into the leaders of animal law education and outreach back home.
Additionally, our international network of animal law attorneys and advocates serves as the nexus for animal law professionals around the world. These efforts include supporting conferences and trainings, providing microgrants, and assisting advocates as they develop innovative approaches to advance animal protection.
The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) and the #1 ranked Environmental Law Program at Lewis & Clark Law School have created the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment (Global Law Alliance) as champions for wild animals and wild spaces across the globe. The Global Law Alliance works to protect animals and the environment through the development, implementation, and enforcement of international law.
The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) at Lewis & Clark Law School is pleased to announce that Tarja Koskela, a university lecturer and researcher at the University of Eastern Finland, has joined CALS as a Visiting International Animal Law Ambassador for the month of February.
This was the second year that the Conference was held, and is about animals broadly- combining presentations from academics, practitioners, NGOs, activists, and other specialists.
