This webinar is hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public. 


This webinar provides practical information for advocates, petitioners’ counsel, and the courts for approaching domestic violence protection orders that will have a positive impact in the lives of domestic violence survivors. Starting with the basic premise that the legal system’s primary focus is protecting the most vulnerable members of our society, this webinar seeks to promote the rule of law by means of the well-crafted protection order. The presenter is himself a former Court Commissioner who heard and decided many Order for Protection cases in his courtroom, so this is his perspective.


David Keck, Project Director, National Center on Domestic Violence and Firearms
