Meeting the Civil Legal Needs of Survivors: The Center for Solo Practitioners
August 19, 2014
10:00 -11:30 am PT (12:00-1:30 pm CT, 1:00-2:30 pm ET)
Salaried attorneys and pro bono services do not meet all the legal needs of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children. Funding sources for full-time attorneys are scarce. The Alliance and Thomas Jefferson School of Law have partnered to create a sustainable, new model for providing legal services to victims and their children.
This webinar will:
- •Look at the Complex Legal Needs of Victims Through the Eyes of a Survivor
- •Describe the "Incubator" Models for Legal Services Developing in Law Schools Across the Country
- •Present the San Diego "Accelerator" Model Known as the Center for Solo Practitioners (CSP)
- •Provide an Overview of the New Justice Legal Network for CSP Graduates and Other Lawyers Interested in Providing Public Interest Legal Services
- •Discuss the Steps Necessary to Develop a Similar Model in Family Justice Center Communities Across the United States
- •Discuss Next Steps
