This Training Will Highlight:

  • Representation: How to effectively and sensitively work with a victim of sexual assault and best practices applicable to pro bono representation.
  • Safety: Representing a victim to secure a 258E restraining order so that they are safe at school, at work, and at home.
  • Privacy: Representing a victim to protect private mental health, medical and education records in a criminal case.

All of VRLC clients are sexual assault victims in Massachusetts seeking free civil legal assistance. Cases are screened by VRLC staff attorneys. Volunteer attorneys represent clients on discrete legal issues. These cases are extremely rewarding, short-term, and can provide powerful professional opportunities. Our attorneys are happy to mentor volunteers.
