New Litigation Resource - The Toolkit

October 10, 2013

Victims’ rights are rights personally held by the victim that can be legally asserted during the criminal case. Independent legal representation is absolutely critical to making these rights meaningful. To this end, NCVLI is excited to announce the launch of the Responding to Violence Against Women Toolkit, providing the tools that will help practitioners effectively assert and seek enforcement of their clients’ rights. The tools come in the form of video tutorials of rights, flowcharts that guide you through the how and when of asserting rights, checklists to ensure you are making all of the best arguments, and sample pleadings.
