   In May 2014, the Human Trafficking Case was integrated into a broader UNODC portal - SHERLOC (Sharing Electronic Resources and Laws on Crime). The SHERLOC portal is an initiative to facilitate the dissemination of information regarding the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Trafficking Organized Crime and its three supplementing Protocols, namely the Trafficking in Persons Protocol, the Smuggling of Migrants Protocol, and the Firearms Protocol. Apart from the Case Law Database, which allows the users to see how Member States are tackling organized crime cases in their courts, the SHERLOC also includes a database of legislation and a directory of competent national authorities. As a result of this integration, trafficking in persons cases can be accessed both through the Human Trafficking Case Law Database, as well as through the broader SHERLOC.
