The 11th Annual Crime Victim Law Conference, Enhancing Justice: Empowerment Through Victims’ Rights, will have an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together experts from a variety of backgrounds including attorneys, advocates, professors, and mental health professionals.  Presentations will focus on providing practitioners the tools to ensure that services to victims are holistic, victim-centric, and empowering.  Presenters will include David Lisak, renowned clinical psychologist and published author of cutting edge research on the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence, and Paul Cassell, Professor of Law in the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah and victims’ rights legal expert.
Law students are once again invited to submit a completed paper or an abstract addressing victims’ rights to be presented on a law student panel at the Conference. Current law students or recent graduates (within the last 18 months) are invited to apply.
