Training: Connecting Victims and Attorneys to Increase Access to Justice

29 Sep

The criminal justice system can be daunting. In fact, for lay persons, particularly those experiencing trauma, it is nearly unnavigable. Accessible legal representation is critical if victims’ rights are to be meaningful. Unfortunately, many victims are unable to access the attorneys they need. The National Alliance of Victims’ Rights Attorneys & Advocates (NAVRA), a Project of the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI), now has the first national, victims' rights-focused Pro Bono Portal to address that gap.

“Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe”: Understanding Privileges and Confidentiality to Protect Crime Victims and Enforce their Rights

11 Feb

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.
