Course Description

Human trafficking is global crisis. The International Labor Organization has estimated that there are 20.9 million victims worldwide. The number of trafficking cases being prosecuted by the U.S. government has seen an increase since the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. In this program, President of The Human Trafficking Pro Bono Legal Center, Martina Vandenberg, discusses the state of human trafficking law in the United States and debunks many of the myths surrounding it. Ms. Vandenberg not only covers criminal prosecutions, but discusses civil actions as well, giving particular focus to restitution and the calculation of damages. A number of key cases are discussed in depth, as are the statistical occurrences and outcomes of human trafficking cases.
