Stanford, California: ABC’s of Representing Victims of Crime
Date: June 29 2012 8:30am - 4:30pm Location: Stanford Law School - Manning Faculty Lounge, OLD/Crown Law School Building, 2nd floor
Access to justice requires competent legal advocacy, and yet too often victims of crime do not receive the legal representation that they need to protect their rights. You can help!
On June 29, 2012, the country’s leading experts on victim law from the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI) will conduct a full day practical skills continuing legal education course* at Stanford Law School.
This full-day program has been developed primarily for lawyers and will provide a general overview of crime victims’ rights law, guide you through the basic steps involved in representing crime victims in criminal cases, and teach the “how to’s” of asserting crime victims’ rights in California state courts. The training will focus primarily on pretrial practice by highlighting commonly occurring issues that may require motion practice and discussing ways to litigate those issues. It will also address ethical problems that may arise when representing crime victims and provide an overview of some events during trial and post-conviction stages that may implicate victims’ rights.
Whether you know nothing about victims’ rights or you already have some experience, this training will provide you with the tools to become an effective advocate for California crime victims.
This California program is a part of a series of in-person and webinar continuing legal education courses being taught throughout the country in 2012 by NCVLI and members of NCVLI’s bar association, the National Alliance of Victims’ Rights Attorneys (NAVRA)** on a variety of victims’ rights topics.
