Amy Brown (JD '13) Appointed Anti-Human Trafficking Fellow at Sudreau Global Justice Institute
Pepperdine Caruso Law alumna Amy E. Brown (JD '13) has been appointed as the inaugural Anti-Human Trafficking Fellow at the Sudreau Global Justice Institute. Amy is a former federal prosecutor who has actively prosecuted human trafficking cases. In her new role, Amy will assist the institute in developing its anti-trafficking policy strategy and conducting judicial process trainings with international leaders. Amy is currently working with a West African country to begin training prosecutors and judges on how to prosecute human trafficking cases.
The Sudreau Global Justice Institute continues to expand geographically. The institute is actively working with the governments of four countries (Uganda, Ghana, Rwanda, Nigeria), and communicating with many more. The institute has signed Memoranda of Understanding with both the International Justice Mission (IJM) and Willow International, and is working alongside the U.S. State Department in West Africa.
With this growth comes the need to bolster the institute's team of experts who are able to advise and train leaders around the world when approached with a government request. One issue of focus is the fight to end human trafficking and slavery. IJM, one of the institute's partners, has a goal to "end slavery in our lifetime." The Sudreau Global Justice Institute wants to join IJM in achieving that goal. To that end, the institute developed the anti-human trafficking role in order to bolster its expertise and better support its governmental and NGO partners.
