As part of NCVLI's commitment to furthering the rights of child-victims of crime, the Safeguarding Child-Victims' Rights Initiative has spent the past year working with an eleven-member multidisciplinary curriculum committee to develop an intensive two-day, skills-based training on how to provide effective rights enforcement representation to child-victims of crime. The pilot launch of the training will take place at Lewis & Clark Law School on February 24th and 25th, and online registration is now open at https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?llr=ikdcttcab&oeidk=a07e5jyzv6z2a7f7312&oseq=. Space is limited, so register soon to ensure that you can snag one of these limited spots.

This intensive training will provide participants with an overview of victims' rights and a detailed afternoon of child development knowledge and age-appropriate techniques for working with a child-victim client. The training will offer in-depth information and practical litigation skills that can assist attorneys in asserting a child-victims' rights throughout a criminal proceeding, and additional sessions will focus on ethical issues, issue-spotting and referrals for related issues, and resisting the temptation to be all things to a child-victim client.

This training has been developed primarily for lawyers who are interested in helping child-victims enforce their rights in a criminal proceeding, and it focuses heavily on arguments and motions that can be made on behalf of a child-victim. NCVLI has applied to the Oregon State Bar for 12.5 CLE credits, including 1.75 Ethics credits and 3 Access to Justice credits (pending approval).
