NCVLI’s annual Crime Victim Law Conference, now in its 12th year, continues to be the only conference in the country focusing on rights enforcement in criminal cases, which is a critical but often overlooked component of holistic victim services. The Conference provides participants with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to provide effective legal services to victims of crime. The Conference will take place June 7-8, 2013 in Portland, Oregon.
The 2013 Conference is themed Constructing Justice: Making Victims’ Rights a Reality, urging us to develop, implement, and share best practices that will achieve justice for victims. Concrete tools ensure that victims’ rights become more than mere words on paper.
Who Should Attend
The Crime Victim Law Conference is primarily designed for attorneys (e.g., victims’ rights attorneys, prosecutors, civil victim attorneys, judges, defense attorneys), system-based and community-based advocates, other criminal justice professionals, law students, and victims/survivors.
