Animal Law Training



SOFA conducts introductory training in Animal Law to law students, graduates or lawyers interested in the field. Selected participants are awarded certificates. As a follow-up, SOFA conducts an in-depth training to equip the participants with the necessary legal knowledge so as to enable them to advocate for animal protection and welfare. 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. The training was themed “Train the trainer”, the trained lawyers are already training communities and university students on the importance of animal laws and animal conservation. This year the organization hosted its second animal law training from the 28th of May 2018- to the 1st of June 2018.
