Modern Abolitionist Legal Society

Ashleigh Kline, Secretary

The Modern Abolitionist Legal Society empowers 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 raise general awareness about modern day slavery, with a particular emphasis on domestic and international human trafficking; identify and respond to the legal questions and novel issues that arise when addressing trafficking in persons; 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 stimulate greater academic research by students, faculty, and alumni at MSU College of Law about human trafficking locally, nationally, and internationally.
