Moe Honjo is an Associate Professor at Nagasaki University’s Graduate School of Fisheries and Environmental Sciences in Nagasaki, Japan. She received Doctoral degree from Hitotsubashi University, and finished a double master degree in Animal Law LLM and Environmental and Natural Resources Law LLM at Lewis & Clark Law School. She is a legal reporter for the derechoANIMAL website, the animal law database of Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, representing Japan.
“My time at Lewis & Clark in the Animal Law LLM program and the opportunities for developing relationships and my professional network were invaluable. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my life! Currently, I am researching Japanese animal cruelty enforcement issues for a comparative analysis between the US, particularly in Oregon and California. I will also be a guest researcher at Frankfurt University later this year.”
Moe’s “The EU as World Leader in Animal Welfare: Laboratory Animal Law in the EU and Asia” received first prize for research presentation at the 2016 European Union Studies Centres in Asia-Pacific Graduate Students Research Workshop.
