Krishna Patel, the assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut, will visit Quinnipiac University School of Law on Thursday, March 31, at 2 p.m. in the Grand Courtroom of the School of Law Center.
The event is organized by the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA), a student group at Quinnipiac University School of Law.
Patel specializes in prosecuting sex crimes, human smuggling and human trafficking. She will discuss her experiences as a federal prosecutor and international crime fighter.
“Ms. Patel has extensive experience in prosecuting sex crimes, and often crosses many international borders in the process, including during her work in Southeast Asia,” said Prerna Rao, a second-year law student and the president of APALSA.
“The international aspect of her job--how to deal with foreign authorities, language and cultural barriers, and conflict of laws--is something that interests many of us.”
Quinnipiac law professors Jeffrey Meyer and William Dunlap will also join the discussion.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 203-582-8652.
