Eva Foti is a clinical fellow in the Human Trafficking Clinic. She is project coordinator of "Representing Victims of Trafficking for Access to Comprehensive Justice," which is funded by a $300,000 grant from the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP) of the U.S. Department of State. The project has partnered with NEXUS Institute to establish a human trafficking clinic at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City that provides legal services to victims and educates law students on the issue of human trafficking.
Foti graduated from Brown University with a BA in history and Hispanic studies, and from the University of Michigan Law School, where she served as managing editor of the Michigan Journal of Race & Law. During law school, she participated in two clinical programs, the Human Trafficking Clinic and the Pediatric Advocacy Clinic. She has provided direct legal representation to clients, mostly Spanish-speaking immigrants and victims of trafficking, in matters such as immigration, family law, housing, and education.
