Mark, a long time animal advocate and activist, graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School in 2011 with certificates in Animal Law and Criminal Law & Procedure. While at Lewis & Clark, Mark was a Submissions Editor for Animal Law Review, Outreach Chair for SALDF, and a Coordinator for NLG legal observers. Mark is currently an attorney at Nonprofit Support Services in Eugene, Oregon. At this small firm, only a small portion of his work is for nonprofits working directly for animal causes. However, Mark is finding extra-office ways to advocate for animals with the law, as well as continuing his animal advocacy in various other ways. Even while working for his non-animal-focused clients, he is becoming familiar and more proficient in areas of law that are useful for animal advocacy. Mark has a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia and a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies from San Jose State University. Mark has also spent two years in the Peace Corps and has worked for Haitian refugees in refugee camps in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
