2022 Human Trafficking Academy

July 25 - 29

The Academy strongly encourages all participants to attend the Academy in person at the St. Thomas University College of Law campus in Miami, Florida.  However, for those who cannot travel, the Academy may be viewed remotely (materials will be provided electronically).  Please note that the remote format will be a livestream of the event only (no discussion boards) and must be viewed by remote participants in real time.  A link for the live sessions will be provided to online participants to view each course synchronously via Zoom (no recordings will be available once the live session has ended).  The ability to ask questions of instructors or directly participate in working groups will be unavailable for those who choose the remote attendance option.

The Academy is an intensive, advanced “train-the-trainer” curriculum.  Participants consist of attorneys, judges, government officials, law enforcement officers, academics, service providers, case managers, healthcare workers, investigators, students, and others from faith-based, public, and private sectors hailing from across the nation and around the world.

The Academy is five days, taking place July 25 through July 29, 2022.  In addition, participants will be given optional reading materials pertaining to each Course.

The Academy is typically offered on an annual basis.  Each year a brand new, cutting-edge curriculum taught by the top experts in the field is offered.

Certification will be granted to those participants that meet the minimum attendance requirement of 80% of class time.

Registration includes one continental breakfast, one lunch, materials (provided electronically for remote participants), and certification.
