Session info

Title: Domestic Violence | Addressing Bias in Family Courts and Related Systems.

Presenters: Beth Assell, Esq. and Debra Bulluck Esq. of Standpoint.

Description:Implicit - and even explicit - bias can impede the ability of family law practitioners to understand the full and complex nature of domestic abuse and how it is experienced in the lives of individual victim-survivors. Furthermore, abuse is experienced differently in different social and cultural contexts, which may not be fully understood by practitioners. This session will prepare family lawyers to effectively account for such information gaps and biases as they represent these survivors, prepare clients for mediation or litigation, and present a clear and persuasive picture of the abuse to other practitioners and the court.
