Course for lawyers a great success!

Course for lawyers a great success!

In September we announced the launch of our online training for lawyers, “Effective Lawyering with Clients Leaving Abusive Relationships.”

We’ve received a great deal of interest in the course and lots of positive feedback.

Here’s what lawyers who have completed the course are saying:

“This was a great course, and I feel that I have learned a lot.”

“This course demonstrates how much more sophisticated training has to be for lawyers who are dealing with DV cases.”

“Overall excellent. Concise and provided multiple external resources.”

“Well structured. You can immediately see that the content will be useful.”

“I think the Best Practice Manual is an amazingly valuable tool. I hope it will have a wide readership down the road.”

“Very well done.”

The most useful aspect

In our course evaluation, we ask lawyers what they found to be the most useful aspect of the course. This is how they have responded:

“Identification of types of abuse”

“The interactive quizzes”

“Ideas for file intake and interviews with clients”

“How to screen signs [of] abuse in clients”
“On giving legal advice”

“How to deal with [a] legal bully”

“Recognizing intimate partner abuse”


“The links to other resources, which are very helpful”

“Best Practice Manual for Lawyers”

“Explanation of risks to lawyers”

Ninety-three percent will recommend the course to other family law lawyers.
