Modern slavery manifests itself in a wide range of contexts and without respect for international borders. Accordingly, the fight against modern slavery takes many forms in the transnational practice space, including tireless civil society and private sector efforts in both public international law and private international law. This program will explore the nature of civil society and private sector efforts to fight human trafficking and modern slavery on both sides of the divide between public and private international law.
Expert faculty will provide attendees with a very brief overview of private international law as it relates to the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery followed by individual presentations by leading advocates in the field highlighting opportunities for legal professionals (like you) to get involved in meaningful pro bono or advocacy-related efforts in this practice space.
