On September 12, 2020 JVI partnered with New India Development Society to hold a virtual training session on Anti-Human Trafficking Laws & Procedures, Rehabilitation Schemes for Survivors, Supreme Court Guidelines and the Impact of COVD-19. Nearly 60 participants attended, including lawyers, paralegals and government officials from the District Legal Service Authority.
The session covered law and procedure pertaining to bonded labor and child labor.. The group also reviewed leading judgments of the Supreme Court and High Court along with victim compensation strategies for survivors of sexual assault and other crimes.
