NCVLI’s Crime Victim Law Conference took place in Portland, Oregon from June 14-15, 2011.  NCVLI was honored to have amazing speakers again this year, including Susan Levy, mother of Chandra Levy, and her attorney Jani Tillery; Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court Paul J. De Muniz; author and lecturer Irvin Waller; victims’ rights icons Meg Garvin, Paul Cassell, and Doug Beloof; former United States Attorney Diane Humetewa; and many more.  More than 175 attendees came from 20 states and the District of Columbia as we celebrated 10 years of litigation successes and discussed how victims’ rights attorneys and advocates can secure fairness for victims and ensure that victims’ rights are no longer ignored. Thanks to all who attended for making the Conference a success!
