Description: From the start of a criminal investigation through post-conviction, crime victims may face multiple attacks on their privacy. Some come from obvious motions requesting protected records, but many more come from simple acts that call into question the privileges and confidentiality victims often may not even know they have. This training will examine the privileges and rules of confidentiality that affect victims, and consider strategies for raising and enforcing those rights to protect victims’ privacy.
CLE Accreditation: The Oregon State Bar approved this training for 1.5 general CLE credits. Once approved in Oregon, this program will be approved for 1.5 CLE credits with the State Bar of California; NCVLI is an approved CA multiple activity provider. The training may be eligible for CLE credit in other states; a certificate of attendance will be available after the program.
