How Lawyers Can Make a Difference
Attorneys can take on human trafficking from many angles and use civil, criminal law and employment regulations to bring traffickers to justice. To assist survivors and protect their rights, lawyers have required traffickers to compensate their victims and fought charges leveled against women forced into prostitution. As financial compensation, trafficking victims are eligible for criminal restitution awards and civil damages.
We must enact policies and continue to create laws that undermine the motives for those responsible.
