The Working Group
Business enterprises are in a unique position to combat the widely condemned practice of human trafficking through their exercise of market power. ABA President Laurel Bellows (2012-13) devoted much of her term to fighting this scourge. As part of that initiative, during the fall of 2012, she asked the Section of Business Law to create a Working Group, which aims to help business enterprises and their lawyers play their part in ending human trafficking. The Working Group consists of over 50 leading business experts: judges, in house and outside counsel, as well as NGO, academic and governmental representatives.
