Launch of 1st Annual Pre-Conference Institute
For the first time ever NCVLI will host a pre-conference skill building seminar exclusively designed for attorneys and law students! The session, Pretrial Litigation of Victims’ Rights in Oregon, will be an intensive 3.5 hour course that will provide an overview of key victims’ rights that arise pretrial under Oregon law, and arm the practitioner with skills necessary to effectively represent the victim at these critical junctures. The training will be a practice-based approach to securing protection of a victim’s rights pretrial through collaboration with prosecution and other criminal justice professionals when possible and through motion practice and appeal when necessary. Whether the pretrial issue is notice of hearings, imposition of release conditions, a subpoena for victim records, or rape shield, this seminar will ensure you know how to effectively protect your victim-client’s rights.
The pre-conference institute will be held on Monday, June 13th, 2011, from 8:30am - 12:00pm at The Benson Hotel (same venue as the Conference), and is exclusively for attorneys and law students. There is no charge for admission to the event IF you have registered and paid to attend the NCVLI Crime Victim Law Conference, otherwise the cost is $15 per person. Registration is limited to 25 individuals, first-come, first-served. Click here to register (note this registration is separate from the Conference registration).
