How do legal aid organizations grow the practice of trafficking and other crime victim legal services and rights enforcement? This session will draw from the experience of the Equal Justice Works’ Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellowship program, where more than 60 attorneys provide direct legal services to trafficking and other crime victims at various legal aid organizations across the country. The panel will discuss the successes, challenges, and lessons learned in the efforts to build this practice with a goal of building capacity and providing comprehensive legal services to survivors. The session will include a participatory discussion on the civil legal aid landscape in serving crime victims and how different types of organizations can leverage their existing structures and clientele to develop this practice.
