Civil Justice for Victims of Crime in Pittsburgh
October 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Many victims of crime do not pursue civil remedies because they are not aware of the benefits that the civil justice system can offer. Educated victim service providers are a key to raising awareness among victims about their civil justice rights. Because of this, the National Crime Victim Bar Association, NCVBA, offers free, full day, civil justice seminars across the nation in order to educate victim service providers and advocates. The seminars provide a basic overview of the civil justice system so that advocates can inform victims of appropriate legal services and remedies to help them rebuild their lives.
