Child-victims of crime need an ally who can tackle the complex issues that arise when they become involved with the justice system, and yet few practitioners are trained to meet the unique needs of this population of victims. You can help!
Join the National Crime Victim Law Institute's (NCVLI) Safeguarding Child-Victims' Rights Initiative for an intensive two-day, skills-based training on May 31st and June 1st at the University of Colorado Law School.
This training will provide participants with an overview of victims' rights, a detailed discussion of child development knowledge and age-appropriate techniques for working with a child-victim client, in-depth information and practical litigation skills for attorneys asserting a child-victims' rights throughout a criminal proceeding, analysis of ethical issues that may arise when representing child-victims of crime, and discussion of the inter-relation of disciplines and professions that are often involved when a child is victimized.
The training is open to lawyers, advocates, medical professionals, social workers, law students, and other allied professionals.
