Laying the Foundation of Legal Advocacy

Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Comfort Inn and Suites, Madison

How do the criminal and civil legal systems differ? How do I help someone who needs a restraining order? What does the law say about what programs must or must not do to protect the client’s confidentiality?  What can I do to assist pro se victims? Join us to learn the answers to these questions and more. Participants will gain the knowledge, tools and skills needed to advocate for domestic abuse victims within legal systems.

Please note that this event will start at 8:30 AM and continue until 5:30 PM. Although it is not required, participants who have a laptop (or other device for accessing the internet) are encouraged to bring it to this event. This will be a hands-on training that will help participants find the legal information advocates need to assist victims.
