This webinar is hosted by the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith and Credit (NCPOFFC) in collaboration with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST) and is open to the public.

Content

Human trafficking victims often experience several forms of abuse, such as domestic violence and sexual assault. These survivors may be afraid to disclose information to obtain relevant legal assistance, thereby remaining vulnerable to traffickers. To address this issue, attorneys must have the knowledge and tools to understand human trafficking, identify victims, and recognize the legal needs of these survivors. This webinar will examine the complexities of human trafficking and the challenges survivors face when deciding whether or not to obtain a protection order. Participants will receive information on how to obtain tools, training, and technical assistance on understanding human trafficking and assisting survivors.

The presenters welcome your questions in advance; please email any questions to mplayer@bwjp.org.

1.5 hours CA CLE is approved for this training. CAST is a California State Bar approved MCLE provider. This program may be eligible for MCLE in other states. Please check your State Bar for MCLE reciprocity rules.
