Legal First Responders: Equipping Attorneys to Empower Human Trafficking Survivors

  • Continuing Legal Education Program (CLE)

The human trafficking training will help equip the growing network of legal first responders committed to helping trafficking survivors in Michigan. The training will be provided by attorneys and other subject matter experts with extensive experience providing services to human trafficking survivors and in-depth knowledge of many of the legal issues that affect them.  The intensive training is designed to provide attorneys with a solid foundation and understanding of the issues and obstacles survivors of trafficking frequently face that arise from the circumstances of their enslavement, including expungement, guardianship, and immigration issues. This training has been approved by the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission for up to 3.5 hours of credit. The event is free of charge with the commitment to accept a human trafficking referral on a pro bono basis within one year of the training. The live training will be held at Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus with simultaneous broadcasting to WMU-Cooley campuses in Lansing and Grand Rapids. Register Today!
