NCVLI fights for victims through legal advocacy, training and education, and public policy.
The National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI) filed a brief urging that domestic violence charges against U.S. Women’s National Team goalkeeper Hope Solo be reinstated. Click here to read more.
The victims’ rights community is filled with passionate and caring individuals who give so much to others. But all too often this giving does not include giving to oneself despite knowing that we are better at our work when we also take care of ourselves. At NCVLI, one of our methods of self-care is integration of dogs into our daily work. Click here to see pictures of some of the dogs who are by our side as we work for victims.
To secure a place for victims as full participants in the criminal justice system requires culture change, which in turn requires that the next generation of lawyers be more aware of and committed to victims’ rights. So each term NCVLI teaches the Crime Victim Litigation Clinic at Lewis & Clark Law School. This fall five second and third year law students are working to advance victims’ rights.
