This seminar is designed for United States Attorneys’ Office Victim Assistance personnel who assist victims of human trafficking. Labor traffickers are continuing to grow and expand their industries and enterprises, while commercial sex trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world and is a significant problem in the United States. United States Attorneys' offices are seeing an increase in human trafficking cases, and staff are faced with the difficult task of addressing victims’ needs while managing complex legal aspects of these cases. Course participants will gain a deeper understanding of the different types of human trafficking; the dynamics of human trafficking, to include recruitment and lifestyle; difficulties faced during prosecution; victim advocacy in the courtroom; and how to address the unique needs of both foreign and domestic victims.
