Mr. Watson received recognition in the category of economic development for his integral role supporting and coordinating a Commercial Law Program that provides training and mentoring to attorneys in Africa who have historically had limited experience with commercial law. As a volunteer for ISLP since 2005, Mr. Watson has helped hundreds of lawyers receive business law training in South Africa, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Botswana. In addition to his work in Africa, Mr. Watson has led a series of mock negotiation training sessions coordinated by the U.S. Commerce Department for representatives from the Iraqi Ministry of Oil and Pakistani Ministry of Trade & Industry.
