Symposium to Address Protection of Children

| January 7, 2013

Some of the most pressing and challenging issues of justice facing children today will be confronted at Regent Law's Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law when it presents the second annual "Seeking Justice for the Least of These" Symposium. The two-day symposium will take place at The Founders Inn and Spa on the Regent University campus, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 11-12.

For a complete schedule and to register, go to http://www.regent.edu/justice.

The symposium will offer attendees the opportunity to interact with a network of experts on issues involving child trafficking, child welfare, adoption and juvenile justice both in the United States and around the world. Symposium attendees will include human rights advocates, legal professionals, nonprofits, ministry leaders and students. Everyone coming to the meetings shares a common purpose: to help and to serve the vulnerable and oppressed in the world.

Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, will be the keynote speaker for the Friday evening banquet. About 50 experts will be speaking throughout the weekend, including Jeffrey Barrows, director, Abolition International Shelter Association; Yali Lincroft, policy and program consultant, First Focus; Jack Levine, volunteer program director, National Association of Youth Courts; Kathi Grasso, senior juvenile justice policy and legal advisor, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention; Dr. Ana Aspras Steele, president, Dalit Freedom Network; David Rogers, supervisory special agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation; Dan Owens, president, Sixty Feet; and Yuri Mantilla, director of international government affairs, Focus on the Family.

The Center for Global Justice equips Christian advocates who will promote the rule of law and seek justice for the world's downtrodden—the poor, the oppressed and the enslaved—and serves and supports those already engaged in such advocacy. Activities include academic preparation, internship programs, partner support, collaborative initiatives and special events. The Center was launched in October 2010 by Regent University's School of Law.
