Law students

FLORIDA STATE AND UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA law students stand on a dock at Lake Apopka, while learning about the effects pesticides have had on the lake and its various animal populations during this year’s alternative spring break event. The lake trip was part of a “Toxic Tour” throughout Apopka with the Farmworker Association of Florida during which the students learned about the history of pesticide use in Florida agriculture and its present-day effects on the agricultural workers and lands in Southwest Florida. The group also trained in Immokalee with Florida Rural Legal Services on various aspects of migrant worker law and met with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Human Trafficking Task Force to learn about the current state of trafficking laws in Florida, and how law enforcement is using the law to catch traffickers and protect victims.
