Learn the extent to which victims of sex trafficking are arrested and criminalized under current police and prosecution practice. This session will provide a basic overview of relevant federal and New York State anti-trafficking law, an examination of how those arrested and prosecuted for prostitution are overwhelmingly victims of trafficking, and how to develop advocacy tools and engage in motion practice to serve this marginalized population. The session will specifically address New York's new innovative law that allows survivors of trafficking to vacate convictions.

Faculty Chairs: Kate Mogulescu, Esq., Criminal Defense Practice and Nancy Rosenbloom, Esq., Special Litigation Practice.

CLE Credit: 2 Credits Total: 1 Hour of professional practice/practice management and 1 hour skills. This program provides transitional credit for newly admitted attorneys.
