Description: Regardless of whether you practice criminal law, family law, employment law, tort law, or wills & estates, you will likely encounter clients with a trauma history. Understanding the brain’s response to trauma is critical to understanding seemingly counterintuitive behavior of clients such as exaggerated fear responses, continued or re-engagement with a perpetrator, non-or delayed disclosure of victimization, flat affect, and ambivalence about participating in justice systems. In this session, Dr. Wilson will unpack the science behind these behaviors in order to arm practitioners with the fundamentals they need to better serve their clients in and out of courtroom.

Facilitator: Terry Campos, J.D., National Crime Victim Law Institute. Ms. Campos' Bio is available here.

Description: Prosecutors play a unique role in the criminal justice system; they are required to zealously represent their client—the state—while also seeking justice for crime victims and ensuring that victims’ rights are afforded. In this complex role, there are times when prosecutors face the situation where the state’s interests and victim’s interests diverge. This potential conflict, combined with the responsibilities prosecutors owe the state and crime victims, can raise some interesting ethical questions. This program discusses various ethical issues that prosecutors may encounter when dealing with crime victims who are unrepresented by counsel as well as victims who are represented by counsel.

Co-Presenter: Terry Campos, J.D., National Crime Victim Law Institute. Ms. Campos' Bio is available here.

Description: U.S. immigration law has special provisions for survivors of human trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes in the United States. Through the U and T Visa application processes, undocumented immigrant survivors of crime can gain temporary lawful immigration status and a pathway to U.S. citizenship. Those survivors wishing to obtain immigration relief through U and T Visas must often first navigate a law enforcement certification process before filing a visa application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This training is geared toward attorneys who have an immigration law practice involving representation of immigrant survivors of crime. The training will cover when law enforcement certification is needed and best practices for requesting law enforcement certification in the T and U Visa contexts. The training will help prepare immigration law attorneys for navigating rules of discovery and possible subpoenas that may arise when immigration relief is pursued during the course of an active criminal prosecution. In addition, the training will address potential ethical issues that may arise when attorneys represent immigrant survivors of crime.
