Presented by: Domestic Violence Project
LOS ANGELES COUNTY BAR PRESIDENT, PAUL KIESEL, FEATURED GUEST SPEAKER
Join LACBA’s Domestic Violence Project (DVP) for its upcoming volunteer training, and earn three hours of CLE credit. Volunteers provide a valuable service to a vulnerable population and gain expertise in the area of family law. No previous experience is required. Attorneys, legal professionals, and law students volunteer for two 3 hour sessions per month for 7 months. In order to volunteer for LACBA’s Domestic Violence Project, LACBA membership is required. This training provides a very comfortable learning atmosphere with a great opportunity for open dialogue with the presenters. Program attendees will receive substantial materials, and dinner is included.
DVP volunteers make a difference every day when they assist victims of domestic violence. Last year, LACBA’s Domestic Violence Project helped more than 4,300 persons. During the course of a shift, a volunteer can help as many as three victims seek protection from their abusers. Volunteers interview victims on a one-on-one basis, gathering information with which to complete complicated legal documents. This allows the victims to file for restraining orders with professionally prepared Petitions.
The Domestic Violence Project operates in offices at the Los Angeles Superior Court. This Project is one of LACBA’s in-house pro bono programs.
