Federalist Society – Montgomery – Friday, June 17, 2016

Stop Human TraffickingThe June luncheon will be on Friday, June 17th at 11:30 a.m. at the Capital City Club. Our speaker will be Professor Tessa Dysart of Regent University School of Law. Her topic will be the law and human trafficking. Human trafficking is a serious problem in Alabama, as this article from just this week demonstrates.

Professor Dysart received her B.A., magna cum laude, from Willamette University in 2001, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2005. Between her undergraduate and law degrees she studied in Moscow, Russia, on a Fulbright Scholarship. She joined the Regent University School of Law faculty in 2012.

Prior to coming to Regent, Professor Dysart worked on important public policy issues, including human trafficking and judicial nominations at the Department of Justice Office of Legal Policy, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the American Center for Law & Justice. She clerked on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit for the Honorable Dennis W. Shedd.
