The court system contains challenges that victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder or child abuse experience when navigating the court process. Due process requires that those coming before the court system have notice and an opportunity to be heard. However, certain victims may experience barriers to accessing justice. Challenges such as disabilities, language, age, income, geography, or even the implicit bias of court professionals can make justice inaccessible and undermine the integrity of our court system. How do victims’ advocates and other justice professionals safeguard our highest value of justice for all? What kind of collaborations are most effective in ensuring due process for victims? Meeting victims needs in court requires a collaborative, multifaceted approach. This includes an understanding of civil and criminal procedures, knowledge of the court system, accommodations that can overcome physical, cultural, emotional and other barriers. This workshop will provide strategies that will enable multidisciplinary collaboration teams to make justice accessible to all victims.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Identify the elements and requirements of procedural due process.
- Recognize factors inherent in the court system that impede access to justice.
- Strategize for effective collaboration among multidisciplinary collaboration teams “to improve access to justice.
