Sherah Tan

Policy and Analytics Manager

Sherah Tan is the policy and analytics manager at the Human Trafficking Legal Center and a Stanford Law School International Postgraduate Fellow.

A graduate of Stanford Law School’s master of the science of law (JSM) program, Tan was part of a policy lab researching resettlement pathways to help high-risk Afghans after the fall of Kabul. Her master’s thesis, “Whither Exploitation: Understanding ‘Exploitation’ for the Purposes of Prosecuting Human Trafficking” was spurred in part by her fellowship experience in the Bangkok field office of International Justice Mission (IJM) where she, as part of a local team, collaborated with Thai authorities to research and advocate for legal reforms in Thailand to ensure better outcomes for labor trafficking victims.

Tan is also a member of the Singapore Bar and a graduate of the University of Bristol. Prior to her full-time pursuit of public interest law, Tan practiced as a commercial litigator and arbitration lawyer in Singapore.
