Ben Douglas-Jones QC, Philippa Southwell and Michelle Brewer announce the publication of the 2nd edition of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery: Law and Practice – Second Edition by Bloomsbury Professional.

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” https://www.antislaverycommissioner.co.uk/media/1478/the-modern-slavery-act-2015-statutory-defence-call-for-evidence.pdf

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.

“Anyone investing in this book can feel confident they will not only be able to handle their problems but will have the skills and knowledge to ensure a just outcome.” –  The London Advocate (review of first edition)

“This book provides a detailed and practical guide to the legal regimes. The guidance is not confined to the courtroom. It realistically encompasses matters outside of a court hearing, relating to victims and those charged with a criminal offence. It is guidance which can properly form the basis of advice to be given by practitioners. It is necessary and welcome.” –  The Rt Hon Lady Justice Nicola Davies DBE, in her Foreword to the Second Edition
