Convicting Sex Traffickers in the Modern World
8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

This event will feature three panels and a keynote speaker discussing the difference in convictions that traffickers receive. Some are convicted under federal law and some under state law. Speakers will discuss how they'd like to see the laws change, the evidence needed from law enforcement in the court system, and what they have learned by working with victims or observing in court. 

A light breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. The event will also be available for CLE credit. The Mitchell Hamline Journal of Public Policy and Law Symposium is hosting this event. 
Alumni CLE: Pet Law: A New Practice Area Unfolds

The Alumni CLE Series presents: "Pet Law: A New Practice Area Unfolds"

Presenter Barbara J. Gislason ’80 (WMCL), of the Law Office of Barbara J. Gislason will provide an overview of animal law nationally and internationally, and focus on three leading national cases and three cases of importance in Minnesota.

Barbara is a solo practitioner in Fridley, Minnesota, offering experienced legal guidance, practical solutions, and aggressive advocacy across a diverse range of legal areas, including Family Law, Animal Law and Intellectual Property Law. She has worked with national and state associations to create Animal Law committees and has been instrumental in drafting and passing laws regarding animal issues. She has extensive experience representing clients involved in animal-related disputes, and continues to play a key role in national efforts to standardize and mainstream Animal Law as a legal practice area.

She is the author of Pet Law and Custody: Establishing a Worthy and Equitable Jurisprudence for the Evolving Family, which Temple Grandin called “[e]ssential reading for lawyers and anybody who is interested in animal legal issues. Barbara Gislason’s work is pioneering and will help you think deeply about the relationship between people and animals.”
