While human trafficking is widespread and growing across the nation, the manifestations of trafficking in the state court setting remain unclear, and what state courts can do to adjudicate cases involving trafficking victims and traffickers remains elusive. Even as state legislators across the nation have been passing human trafficking laws, the potential impacts of these laws on state court operations have rarely been contemplated.

To this end, the Human Trafficking Collaborative has developed relevant and comprehensive materials for State Courts with regard to Human Trafficking. These materials and resources are intended to increase awareness of human trafficking in the state courts and enhance state and local court capacity to improve court services affected by human trafficking-related case processing demands. You can find all of our resources designed to help court practitioners and their justice partners address human trafficking cases here:
