Professor of Law Luz Nagle spoke at universities around the world on topics ranging from transborder crime and corruption to creating inclusive institutions and societies.

In Canada, Nagle spoke on “Transborder Crime, Corruption, and the Collusion of Latin America’s Elites,” at a conference on Transnational Criminal Law in the Americas hosted by the University of Windsor Law School in Ontario, Canada. She joined scholars who traveled from countries including Argentina, Canada, Chile, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, the UK, the U.S. and the West Indies to join the conference May 4-5 sponsored by the Transnational Law and Justice Network.

“The conference was situated in the border city of Windsor, Ontario, the most highly trafficked land border in North America,” said Professor Nagle. “The University of Windsor was an ideal space for such a conversation.”

On May 23, Nagle gave two presentations in Brazil at the University of Sao Judas Faculty of Law to lawyers and students. She presented in the morning at the Butantan campus on “Embracing Diversity to Create Institutions that Improve Inclusiveness in Societies,” in a session with Catholic University of Pernambuco Professor Carolina Valença. Dean Fernando Aguilar summarized the presentation and directed questions.  Professor Nagle’s presentation was translated into both Spanish and Portuguese.

In the evening, she gave the same presentation to an auditorium of more than 300 people on the University’s Mooca campus.

Professor Nagle also spoke in Costa Rica on illegal organ trafficking and exploitation, discussing the ongoing case of a Costa Rican doctor and medical clinic engaged in international organ trafficking with an Israeli organ broker. Her presentation was the subject of a feature in La Nación.

She was also invited to join a distinguished group of experts and academics at Washington University Law School in St. Louis to discuss integrating international criminal court jurisprudence more firmly in U.S. law school curriculums.

This summer, Professor Nagle will publish her book on the nexus of public and private corruption in human trafficking, and issues involving the conduct of human trafficking NGOs.

The new book, “Understanding Human Trafficking, Corruption and the Optics of Misconduct in the Public, Private and NGO Sectors: Processes for Solutions,” published by Carolina Academic Press, comes out at the end of the summer.
