Human Trafficking Academy 2015

St. Thomas University School of Law's LL.M./J.S.D. Program in Intercultural Human Rights has developed and guides The Human Trafficking Academy, a project originally funded by the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance.  Directed by Dr. Roza Pati, the project aims at conducting education, outreach and research in the field. In particular, it offers specialized training and technical assistance to law enforcement, lawyers, healthcare providers, teachers, students, researchers, religious institutions and the community at large on issues related to the crime of trafficking in persons.  Year around, the Academy reaches out to the community, in so many ways: presentations, conferences, symposia, round-tables, work-shops; from schools to churches, from colleges to police departments, to city halls, to State Attorneys offices and various governmental departments.

Human Trafficking Academy 2015 will be held in December 7 – 11, 2015.
