October 1, 2006

Author: Amy Schwartz-Wallace

Thanks to funding received from the New York State Senate, the Empire Justice Center is pleased to announce the expansion and enhancement of legal technical assistance and training to the civil legal services community and other domestic violence-related service providers outside of New York City. 

Beginning in October 2006, the Domestic Violence Legal Program will:

  • Offer increased opportunities for training and networking at regional and statewide Domestic Violence Task Force meetings
  • Provide bi-monthly Domestic Violence Case Law Updates to Task Force members and enhance the existing domestic violence-related case law database housed on the Online Resource Center
  • Enhance and update the domestic violence section of the Empire Justice Center’s website 
  • Be available to respond to a greater number of requests for legal research, consultation, information, and referrals from legal services attorneys and domestic violence advocates  

For more information about this program or to make a request for legal technical assistance (civil legal services or domestic violence service providers only please), please contact Amy Schwartz.
