CCJS doctoral candidate Shelby Hickman has been awarded a Fulbright to conduct research in Brazil.
From March to November 2020, Shelby will work with federal judge and professor Dr. Carlos Haddad to study the effect of an anti-trafficking law clinic in Minas Gerais on successful prosecution of human trafficking cases and to identify factors associated with successfully prosecuted cases. She will also conduct focus groups, interviews, and observations to identify important characteristics of implementation of the law clinic.
