Recommended by The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, Dame Sara Thornton, in her 2020 report on "The Modern Slavery Act 2015 Statutory Defence: A call for evidence"

Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Law and Practice, Second Edition provides guidance to those who deal directly or indirectly with those affected by modern slavery and trafficking, employ or manage a workforce, or have oversight of supply chains.

It enables practitioners to deal with issues of law and procedure by providing an accessible, but comprehensive, summary of the points that need to be considered in order to plan a coherent litigation or compliance strategy.

This Second Edition focuses on areas which have become of critical importance such as:
- The modern slavery defence
- Corporate accountability and modern slavery compliance statements
- National Referral Mechanism for victims
- How to identify victims of trafficking and modern slavery
- How to elicit key information from victims of trafficking and modern slavery
- Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings
- The EU Anti-trafficking Directive

This highly accessible guide draws on the expertise and experience of professionals in different disciplines, so that practitioners can receive guidance for their own practice and an understanding of the inter-relationship with other practice areas.

Criminal, immigration, commercial and civil lawyers will find this an essential guide. It is also important for businesses when undertaking human rights due diligence assessments, as well as for those who work in law enforcement, the judiciary and academia.
