Lawyers Without Borders
Human Trafficking Conference

Lawyers Withour Borders


Lawyers Without Borders
to Host Event at The United Nations

Human Trafficking Conference

Vienna, Austria

October 21, 2010

Showcases organization’s training capabilities for international lawyers and judges


NEW YORK  – Lawyers Without Borders, a U.S.-based international non-profit dedicated to preserving the integrity of the legal process, will participate in an oral discussion and host a side event at next month’s Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and
its Protocols.

The conference is held periodically in Vienna to improve the international community’s ability to fight transnational organized crime. This is the fifth session since the convention came into force September 2003.

The Lawyers Without Borders side event will focus on methodology for preparing trainings on human trafficking, using the organization’s November 2010 judicial capacity building trip in Liberia as a model. The session enjoys the support of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking, and will be held on October 21 from
1 to 3 p.m. Lawyers Without Borders founder and president Christina Storm will lead the side event with Linklaters associates from the firm’s Brussels and London offices Stijn Sabbe, Sacha Cornely, and Julia Salasky.

“We participate in pro bono projects that match our reputation as a global law firm and provide opportunities for our lawyers to collaborate across different offices,” said Linklaters associate Stijn Sabbe. “The United Nations conference is one of the premier venues for multilateral and non-governmental discussion around the issues relating to human trafficking, and we are proud to help Lawyers Without Borders be part of that conversation.”

Lawyers Without Borders is also expected to give oral statements at the conference highlighting the importance of proper legal research and training in effectively implementing the UN’s Human Trafficking Protocol.

“Human trafficking is a complex international problem,” said Lawyers Without Borders founder and president Christina Storm. “Effective legal training and capacity building is essential to ensuring that trafficking prosecutions are vigorous, transparent and effective. We look forward to continuing our collaboration for academics, policy experts and fellow legal professionals in Vienna.”
