Course Description

Length: 1h 1min    Published: 6/14/2017    
Human trafficking is one of the biggest challenges in criminal law, international law, and human rights in the United States today. While sex and labor trafficking is one of the most profitable criminal enterprises, it is also one of the most difficult to detect.

San Diego has risen as the national leader in combating the problem of trafficking, an effort led in part by Chief Deputy DA Summer Stephan. In this course, Ms. Stephan gives viewers an overview of the trafficking epidemic and discusses the key laws impacting human trafficking and the key challenges that victims and legal professionals face. She will also discuss the concept of how eliminating bias is critical to the proper handling of victims/clients and steps San Diego has undertaken in recent years to address the problem.
