Human Trafficking Academy 2015

December 7 – December 11, 2015

Through 22 intensive and inter-active courses, for you to choose from, taught by top-level experts, academics and practitioners, as well as 5 Thematic Lunches, we aim at empowering you with valuable knowledge, effective skills and helpful tools to address the scourge of human trafficking: commercial sexual exploitation and labor trafficking. Whether you are seeking basic information, refine your knowledge and skills as an intermediate level participant, or excel with a few advanced courses, we will make sure that your experience with us is remarkable and meaningful. You will leave the Academy knowing better and more intelligent ways of doing your noble work of saving lives and restoring dignity to survivors while improving justice in our society.

Academy participants will gain insight into various manifestations of human trafficking, best approaches and successful practices by addressing the problem from their specific vantage-point, modalities of working with survivors, as well as ways of cooperating with each other, and partnering with the public and private sector and with the community at large, in order to develop a cohesive and coherent anti-trafficking strategy.

Upon completion of the training, Academy participants will be awarded a Certificate by St. Thomas University School of Law.

The Florida Bar has approved 36 Continuing Education Credits (general); 36 Criminal Appellate Law and 36 Criminal Trial Law Certification Credits.
