Domestic Violence Clinic and Justice Center Host Judicial Training Program

On October 17-19, 2018, the National Judicial Institute on Domestic Violence (NJIDV) held an intensive training at Texas Law for a group of state court judges from across the country.  The event was part of the NJIDV’s “Continuing Judicial Skills in Domestic Violence Cases Program” and focused on family court, immigration, and human trafficking issues.

The Justice Center and the Domestic Violence Clinic at Texas Law hosted the training, which was presented by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges and Futures Without Violence, a nonprofit organization based in California.  Faculty members attended the training, and both students and faculty had the opportunity to meet with the participating judges and the presenters from the training.
