Fundamentals of Litigating Victims' Rights
29 Sep 2020
Access to justice requires competent legal advocacy, and yet too often victims of crime do not receive the legal representation that they need to protect their rights during the complex stages of criminal justice. This presentation will provide attendees with an overview of how to assert and seek enforcement of crime victims' rights in a criminal case. The presentation will identify the most common points in the criminal justice process when victims' rights are implicated, key motions victims’ attorneys may need to file, and some strategies to employ to protect victims' rights.
