Kate Mogulescu (Supervising Attorney, The Legal Aid Society)

A supervising attorney in the Legal Aid Society’s Criminal Defense Practice, Kate Mogulescu founded and developed the first anti-trafficking program, The Exploitation Intervention Project, to be implemented by a public defender organization. Through this, Kate regularly trains public defenders, prosecutors and other stakeholders in the criminal justice system nationally. Kate provides testimony before the New York City Council, the New York State Legislature and the United Nations Human Rights Committee. In addition, her critiques of anti-prostitution policing policies have been published in the New York Times and Huffington Post, among others.

Kate’s CLE course, Criminal Justice Advocacy for Survivors of Trafficking, explores how survivors of human trafficking interact with the criminal justice system, most frequently by virtue of their own arrest and prosecution. Lawline members are “deeply moved by the presenter’s vision” and “dedication to her practice in this area of the law.” This course inspires attorneys to get “involved with the pro bono aspect” of this practice through “tremendous insight into a tragic and persistent exploitation of human beings.”
