Content

This training will provide a framework for improving access to justice in domestic violence cases through a procedural justice lens. The discussion will focus on the research underlying procedural justice, contextualizing these concepts within the realities of domestic violence cases and provide practical tools for overcoming the challenges to delivering procedural justice to all litigants.  This will be an interactive session, where participants will be asked to use the chat box to provide examples of procedural justice from their own work.  They will also be asked to identify challenges to delivering procedural justice and suggest unique strategic solutions, based on the information presented, to implement in their own practice and across the systems in which they work.  Finally, participants will be asked to discuss how procedural justice and looking at perceptions of fairness can be used to identify opportunities for addressing actual unfairness and bias throughout systems that impact how domestic violence cases are adjudicated.
