You must be logged in as an Enhanced Member in order to use the Searchable Databases. This Enhanced Members-only area contains the following databases:

AMICUS BRIEFS & MEMOS:  A database of amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs authored by NCVLI and its partners -- submitted to state and federal courts nationwide -- and legal memoranda authored by NCVLI on a variety of victims' rights related topics, searchable by topic, jurisdiction, and year.

CASE SUMMARIES:  A database of NCVLI-prepared summaries of select judicial opinions from across the country.  The case summaries highlight the victims' rights issues at stake and are searchable by topic, jurisdiction, and year.  NCVLI began this database in 2004.  Some key pre-2004 cases have been added.  This collection of opinions does not reflect an exhaustive list of decisions that impact or address issues of interest to victims' rights attorneys; it should be used as one research tool among many.

SAMPLE PLEADINGS:  A database of sample court pleadings from across the country that address issues or topics of interest to victims' rights attorneys.  The samples include pleadings submitted to state and federal courts nationwide as well as templates created by NCVLI; and they are searchable by topic, jurisdiction, and year.
