Modern Abolitionist Legal Society
Sarah Warpinski, Chairperson
Allison Kittelberger, Steering Committee
The purpose of the Modern Abolitionist Legal Society is to empower legal professionals and the community to effectively combat human trafficking. In recognizing the need for a holistic approach in addressing modern slavery, our objectives are to:
1. Raise general awareness about modern day slavery, with a particular emphasis on domestic and international human trafficking;
2. Identify and respond to the legal questions and novel issues that arise when addressing trafficking in persons;
3. Collaborate to increase awareness, identify victims and high-risk populations, and facilitate multi-sectoral involvement between the MSU College of Law community and local organizations such as the Michigan Human Trafficking Task Force; and
4. Stimulate greater academic research by students, faculty, and alumni at MSU College of Law about human trafficking locally, nationally, and internationally.
