Pro Bono Training

CAST’s pro bono program is a key component of CAST’s work with trafficking survivors and enables survivors to access critical legal services. Pro bono attorneys advocate on behalf of survivors of human trafficking and help them take important steps to rebuild their lives. CAST provides a variety of pro bono opportunities, including immigration advocacy, criminal victim-witness advocacy, and civil litigation.

All pro bono attorneys are required to attend CAST’s comprehensive legal training, “Human Trafficking 101” which introduces human trafficking and legal advocacy on behalf of trafficking survivors. This training is offered at least twice a year in Los Angeles, CA and offers 6 hours of MCLE credit to participants.

With the growing need to provide representation for survivors of human trafficking, CAST’s Training and Technical Assistance team has created an online, introductory course focused on how to represent survivors of trafficking from a trauma-informed and person-centered lens.

Individualized Technical Assistance

CAST Training and Technical Assistance program provides free support to legal and social service providers, law enforcement, and program managers assisting trafficking survivors with legal needs. We often experience a high volume of demand. We endeavor to respond to a technical assistance request within 15 business days, but this is not always possible. Priority is given to requests from (1) OVC and OVW grantees, (2) requests related to court or filing deadlines, and (3) those who have completed a CAST eLearning course or in-person training.
