    Session Capacity: N/A

    This session will discuss the text and issues related to the Proposed Final Report of the Working Group to Draft Human Rights Protections in Supply Contracts for the American Bar Association Business Law Section. The hope is that the draft contract provisions will form a part of corporate chain contracts seeking to help eradicate labor trafficking and child labor from supply chains, making a difference to real people—their health, safety, and freedom, and in some cases, life and death. Adoption of policies, while a good start, is not always enough: principles need to be put into practice. One way to do so is to put them in supply contracts. The contracts or related documents (like purchase orders) are what govern, and often guide, the behavior of the parties. When combined with effective remedies for their violation and a willingness to enforce them, they have great potential to make a difference.

    A virtual business meeting was held prior to the Annual Meeting.
