Join us to discuss and raise awareness of the multiple legal issues victims of trafficking face on their journey to achieving access to justice and the support they need to recover from exploitation.

The panel will discuss their work and consider the case study of a group of Lithuanian men trafficked to the UK to work as chicken catchers who are currently suing DJ Houghton Catching Services Limited, a Kent-based gangmaster operation, and the officers of the company. This is the first case in which a British company has been taken to the High Court by victims of trafficking and modern slavery seeking compensation for their alleged abuse and mistreatment.

We hope everyone will participate in the discussion and that this will be an opportunity for attendees from different disciplines to make new connections and share their experience.
