Faculty: ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence
Hosted by: National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit (NCPOFFC)
Audience: If you are an attorney or advocate, this presentation is for you.
Content: Access to legal services has been identified as one of the most effective tools for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking to become safe; however, survivors are frequently unable to access the remedies provided to them by the justice system. This interactive webinar, presented by staff of the ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence, will provide a baseline for what practicing attorneys must consider when representing victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in civil protection order cases. The goals of this training are to (1) assist attorneys in the creation of responsible protocols for handling civil protection order proceedings, (2) improve the quality of legal representation of victims, and (3) enable attorneys to effectively, ethically, and holistically represent victims in civil protection order cases. Discussion will also focus on understanding cultural issues; the role of immigration status, age and/or disability; effectively communicating with clients and other related representation challenges.
