The Project

When victims of domestic violence make the decision to leave their batterer, they often find themselves in the position of representing themselves in divorce proceedings. Unfortunately, these victims are usually the least able to represent themselves. My project seeks to increase the pool of pro bono attorneys willing to directly represent these victims – through networking, community outreach and attorney training. I am also looking at the mediation process as it relates to conflicted couples.
