Compensation training: London

ATLEU held a training session on Monday 24 September for practitioners who want to help victims of modern slavery to bring a claim against their traffickers. The presentations from the event can be found here.

The new Legal Aid contracts started in September so this was a great opportunity for firms with matter starts to find out more about how to carry out this important work.

The course covered:

  • Tips on securing legal aid
  • Taking the client’s instructions
  • Choice of forum
  • Causes of action
  • Tactics and procedure (using case studies)

The trainers
