This webinar is hosted by the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women and is open to the public. 

Content

Victims of battering charged with crimes are best served when advocates understand and support the role of the defense in the criminal legal system. This webinar will explain what it means to advocate from a defense perspective, discuss values shared by anti-domestic violence practitioners and criminal defense practitioners, and suggest some concrete advocacy strategies for working on behalf of victim defendants in ways that maximize opportunities for justice and help prevent further victimization. 

Presenter

Cindene Pezzell, Legal Coordinator, National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women
