The third training organized by the Zimbabwean nonprofit, Speak Out for Animals (SOFA), was held in Harare, Zimbabwe earlier this month. Lewis & Clark Law School’s Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) was the principal sponsor of the trainings and Natasha Dolezal, director of the International Animal Law Program, represented CALS and spoke about animal law in the United States. Additionally, Natasha collaborated with Ever Vimbai Chinoda (Lewis & Clark Law School ’17 LL.M. and SOFA Founder) to secure the participation of Ed Newcomer, Senior Special Agent for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Special Agent Newcomer serves as the Wildlife Law Enforcement Attaché and senior USFWS representative in Southern Africa. The training was the first to focus on prosecutions with ten prosecutors participating from throughout the country.
