The National Crime Victim Bar Association is a wonderful resource for victims, victim service providers, and attorneys. In January, I attended their training Civil Justice for Victims of Crime in Arizona. It was full of information. Some of the information was specific to Arizona and some of the information applied to multiple or all states. There was a top-notch panel of speakers from the local legal community.
I will attend the Civil Justice for Victims of Crime in California, in San Diego and I will be one of the speakers on the panel in Costa Mesa (Orange County). I will share my experience as the parent of a victim of who was molested by her teacher and our precedent-setting civil suit against the teacher and the school district. Here is a description of what will be covered at the training including a list of the panel speakers, and locations where the training is offered in California.
Civil Justice for Victims of Crime in California, will explore how victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, child sex abuse, drunk driving, homicide, workplace violence, terrorism, elder abuse, identity theft and financial and property crimes can use civil lawsuits to obtain justice, hold responsible parties accountable, prevent future crimes, and obtain the financial resources victims need to rebuild their lives. The program will cover resources and strategies for victims considering civil lawsuits, and will include a panel of attorneys to answer specific questions of California law. There is no charge for any attendee, and we also serve a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and PM snack.
