Law Society Practice Note on Criminal Prosecutions of Victims of Trafficking
This is a practice note from the Law Society aimed at all practitioners who may be involved in criminal cases where issues of human trafficking arise. It is intended to outline the main provisions of the relevant conventions, to inform practitioners of specific Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) guidance and to highlight the duty to enquire and, if necessary, investigate further, any claim that an individual is a credible trafficking victim.
Guide to Legal Remedies for Trafficked Persons in the UK
Anti-Slavery International and Eaves Housing Poppy Project have prepared a guide to legal remedies for trafficked persons in the UK.
The guide aims to be a practical manual for lawyers and social service providers by presenting an overview of the legal remedies available to trafficked persons under UK and international law. It also contains practical examples of usage of the various methods for compensation for victims of trafficking drawn from the experience of practitioners.
