Child-victims of crime face unique challenges. From the myriad of legal systems that may be involved, to the developmental differences in children, protecting a child-victim's rights presents unique hurdles for advocates.
As part of NCVLI's commitment to furthering the rights of child-victims of crime, the Safeguarding Child-Victims' Rights Initiative has spent the past year working with an eleven-member multidisciplinary curriculum committee to develop an intensive two-day, skills-based training on how to provide effective rights enforcement representation to child-victims of crime. The pilot launch of the training will take place at Lewis & Clark Law School on February 24th and 25th. Two additional trainings will be offered in locations across the country in the Spring and Summer of 2012.
