8-Hour Legal Services Training for Social Service Providers

The focus of this training is to promote better understanding and partnerships between attorneys and social service providers. Trafficking survivors may have a range of legal needs across several judicial venues. This can increase the interactions between social service providers and various attorneys (i.e., legal service providers, prosecutors and defense attorneys). Because it can be challenging and overwhelming to navigate numerous legal issues, in addition to the complex needs around survivor case management, this training provides the legal framework to help social service providers and their clients navigate complicated legal systems.

The training will cover best practices in working with legal service providers, how to protect privilege/confidentiality, accessing public benefits, taking effective case management notes (so not to negatively impact criminal/civil case), ethical considerations and what to do if subpoenaed.
