NEW HAVEN, Conn.—U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Cole is scheduled to speak at a symposium on fighting human trafficking.

Cole will give opening remarks Thursday at the two-day talk at Yale Law School.

Yale Law School, the U.S. Attorney's Office and FBI are sponsoring "Trade of Innocents: A Global Perspective on Human Trafficking." The symposium will feature panels about the work of law enforcement agencies and non-governmental organizations to detect, investigate and prosecute domestic and international human trafficking and feature a panel discussion about the making of a film, "Trade of Innocents."

The U.N. crime-fighting office has said 2.4 million people across the world are victims of human trafficking at any one time and 80 percent of them are being exploited as sex slaves.
