Human Trafficking Academy 2016

August 1 – 5, 2016

9:00am – 4:30pm

This summer, the Academy is offering 15 intensive and interactive courses, taught by top-level experts, academics and practitioners, aimed at empowering you with valuable knowledge, effective skills and helpful tools to address the scourge of human trafficking: commercial sexual exploitation and labor trafficking. 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.

A few new topics will be covered during this summer's Academy, to keep abreast with new developments in anti-trafficking efforts.

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.

30 continuing legal education credits (pending) with The Florida Bar will be available for lawyers.
