Projects & Inquiries
The goal of our educational outreach and support efforts is to act as a resource in helping develop the field of animal law and education outside of the U.S. To do this, we provide various kinds of assistance to individuals or organizations in furtherance of this goal. We are interested in learning about and supporting relevant and impactful projects in countries where animal law is a nascent field. If you have an idea for a project or how we might assist you, then we welcome you to read about current and past projects and fill out the form below.

SOFA aims to be influential in establishing a network of lawyers who appreciate; and are dedicated to the practice of animal law. The first animal law training workshop was conducted in 2017. 10 lawyers were awarded certificates after completion of the training.
