About This Course

In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. It was reauthorized in 2013, followed by the 2015 passage of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act. And yet, only 31 states have enacted human trafficking legislation and only 18 have enforceable Safe Harbor laws. Given what we know about the horrifying rise in human trafficking, child sexual exploitation and prostitution in recent years, a problem that is only exacerbated by world conflict, these topics are increasingly of interest. This CLE course will explain effective representation of human trafficking victims, including children charged as prostitutes. The course will present some of the most challenging legal issues in representing victims and discuss recent instances of exploitation and juvenile prostitution that have come under public scrutiny.
