Arizona Voice for Crime Victims
Funded by a subgrant from the National Crime Victim Law Institute with funding from the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, the Arizona Clinic provides pro bono legal representation and social services to victims of crimes in tribal, state, and federal proceedings. In June 2008 the Clinic had over 50 victim-clients who have been victimized by crimes including homicide, sexual assault, assault, and harassment. In addition, the Clinic serves as an important resource to victims, social services providers, courts, and criminal justice professionals in the Arizona and the entire federal Ninth Circuit. In addition the Clinic trains lawyers, judges, victim advocates and law students on victims’ rights law and social service issues.
