The Human Trafficking Clinic (HTC) at the University of Michigan Law School, launched in 2009, is the first clinical law program solely dedicated to the issue of human trafficking. Human trafficking can be simply understood as compelled service. The legal clinic model consists of clinical faculty supervising students as they prepare for each aspect of their cases.  Students move beyond the theory of the classroom into the real-world practice of law. During this session, Elizabeth Campbell, Co-Director of the HTC, will describe the varied experiences and complex needs of survivors of human trafficking. In describing the work, Professor Campbell will debunk pervasive and harmful myths about trafficking. Professor Campbell will be joined by a student attorney from the clinic. The student attorney will shed light on how working directly with survivors of exploitation has impacted the development of their professional identity.

This event is presented by the Initiative on Gender Based Violence and Sexual Harassment at IRWG.
