Cleary Gottlieb Partners with The Legal Aid Society to Assist Victims of Sex Trafficking
January 11, 2012
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. Many victims are forced to work in the sex trade and then are arrested and prosecuted for prostitution. In 2010, New York State passed a law that enables survivors of human trafficking to vacate their convictions for prostitution related offenses. Cleary Gottlieb has joined with Legal Aid to represent these survivors in their quests to clear their records.
