A collaborative symposium for civil legal service attorneys, prosecutors, law enforcement, advocates,
judges, law students, social workers, batterer intervention providers, and others in the field.
For the 2010 Domestic Violence Symposium, we are pleased and excited to offer an unique opportunity to hear and interact with internationally recognized experts who will focus on three general themes: Domestic Violence Assessment, Children Witnessing Domestic Violence, and Domestic Violence Research and Practice. Following two plenary sessions on Thursday, two sessions of workshops will be offered Thursday afternoon & three sessions on Friday morning. Registrants can choose among several workshops in each session which will reflect the symposium themes.
Space is limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. A printable agenda is available by clicking here.
