NCVLI trains on victims’ rights enforcement through in-person trainings, conference presentations, webinars, and other technology assisted trainings. Our trainings range from introductory for those new to victims’ rights; to advanced for those who want to deepen their knowledge of a particular topic; to practical skills for those working in the trenches.

Trainings are customizable by audience, length and learning objective. Because protecting victims’ rights is often a multidisciplinary endeavor, NCVLI routinely partners with medical and mental health professionals to co-train.

Attend Our Conference

If you would like to learn more about our Annual Crime Victim Law Conference, which is the only national conference focusing on the enforcement of victims’ rights, click here. Previous Conferences have included sessions focused on restitution such as:

  • Restitution: A Crime Victim’s Right to “Prompt Restitution” This session will examine the use of liens and garnishment, court orders and other creative and effective tools for successful restitution collection. The session will also look at effective ways the court can help with restitution collection by developing a “restitution court” that looks at offenders who willfully ignore their restitution obligations.
  • How States are Using Data Analysis for Restitution This facilitated discussion will look at the growing number of states that have used data analysis in recent years to revise statutes, track outcomes, and support agency leadership and workforce to improve restitution outcomes. The discussion will ask whether these states help bring about a national shift from deferring to idiomatic narratives, such as “collecting restitution is like getting blood from a stone,” to carrying out data-driven improvements that will help victims recover financially.
  • Legal Tools to Address Elder Abuse & Obtain Restitution This session will provide information on key legal strategies, how to successfully address ethical issues, and how to pursue restitution for elder abuse victims. Additionally, this session will feature the restitution guide developed in California that gives those working with victims an overview of the state’s criminal and civil laws and resources that can be used to mitigate the devastating effect that financial abuse has on the elders.
