More on human trafficking

After presenting a symposium on the same topic, the law school is in the Huffington Post this week for its work in human trafficking law. Specifically, professor Bridgette Carr, the director of the Human Trafficking Clinic, talks about the online database of human trafficking cases that Michigan students have been compiling and organizing for years (and continue to do so).
"I hope the database helps law enforcement, decision makers, and prosecutors realize this crime, while horrific, is not extremely unique or exotic," she writes. "We have known how to fight the elements of human trafficking for a long time. I want law enforcement to see the trafficking law as an extra tool to combat this crime, not the only one."
