In Conversation with Caroline Haughey
Caroline is a barrister who prosecutes and defends across a wide variety of the most serious and high profile criminal cases. Caroline said it was ‘something of a fluke’ that she ended up prosecuting on the first modern slavery case in Britain, in April 2011. Since then, she has played a major role in drafting anti-slavery legislation in the UK, as well as prosecuting on many cases. She helped develop the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and was asked by Theresa May to complete an independent review into the effectiveness of the act a year on. She currently sits on the Modern Slavery Task Force, which is chaired by the Prime Minister.
