Rachel Rein is a Legal Fellow at The Human Trafficking Legal Center, where she conducts research on civil litigation to hold perpetrators of trafficking accountable in the federal courts. Before joining the Center for the summer, she served as a consultant for a human trafficking task force subcommittee. She has also helped victims of sexual and physical violence seek remedies in civil court, and spearheaded a program for group therapy for trafficking victims. Rein has a background in psychology and serves as a volunteer crisis counselor in her free time.
Rein is currently a J.D. candidate at Columbia Law School, where she will participate in a federal prosecution externship at the USAO for the District of New Jersey this upcoming fall. She hopes to practice law in Chicago or D.C. and to use her own privilege to amplify the voices of trafficking victims.
