This webinar is hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public. *Note this is the new, rescheduled date.


Andrew and Jessica Klein’s book, Abetting Batterers: What Police, Prosecutors, and Courts Aren’t Doing to Protect America’s Women reveals a pattern of incompetence and inattention in how the criminal justice system responds to domestic violence. Their first webinar discussed the evolution of system responses leading to criminalizing domestic violence, encouraging arrests, and prosecuting and sentencing abusers. The author’s research points to a problem in commitment rather than the ability to do the job. In this second part, the Kleins focus more on the future, suggesting strategies to ensure that good practices and policies are replicated throughout the country.


Andrew Klein and Jessica Klein, authors of Abetting Batterers: What Police, Prosecutors and Courts Aren’t Doing to Protect America’s Women.
