On September 1st, NCVLI and our partner clinic, the Oregon Crime Victims Law Center (OCVLC), hosted an Open House for the community to learn about how to get involved with victims’ rights.  NCVLI and OCVLC welcomed 45 attendees for an evening of networking, refreshments, and presentations from various members of our community, who spoke about the meaning of their work on behalf of crime victims.  Speakers included Lewis & Clark Law School Dean Robert Klonoff, NCVLI Executive Director Meg Garvin, OCVLC Legal Director Janine Robben, and community members who have donated time as interns and pro bono attorneys.  We were delighted to meet new attorneys, students, and community members interested in getting involved in victims’ rights.  We were also appreciative of the chance to reconnect with dedicated members of our community who work to protect and advance the rights of crime victims every day.  To see the photo gallery from this event, click here To learn more about how to get involved with victims’ rights, click here.
