Law’s Maureen Guirguis Kenny discusses new anti-sex trafficking FOSTA legislation

Maureen Guirguis Kenny, co-founder and co-director of the Human Trafficking Law Clinic at the School of Law, wrote an article for Fortune titled “Why the New Sex-Trafficking Law Is a Promising, But Limited, First Step.”

The piece examines the newly instated Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) and the effects it might have on sex-trafficking websites. She also discusses the limits in the legislation’s power, including the imbalanced burden of proof and the possibility that these criminal operations will simply move elsewhere.
