Course Details

Course Description

Case law can have a significant impact on civil and criminal cases involving family violence, often setting precedent for how future cases will be decided and influencing how law enforcement, prosecutors, and attorneys carry out family violence investigations. Case law arises when appeals courts issue rulings that provide either new interpretations or clarifications of existing laws. This webinar will explore recent civil and criminal case law that impacts the lives of survivors, as well as the work of advocates and other professionals who respond to cases of family violence.
