Luke’s Place presents at international conference
When the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts held its annual international conference in Toronto in May, Luke’s Place Legal Director, Pamela Cross, long-time Luke’s Place supporter, Whitby lawyer Donna Babbs and Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic Executive Director, Amanda Dale presented a workshop about innovative models for providing family court support to survivors of domestic violence.
“The lack of legal representation for family court litigants poses challenges, especially to those who are more vulnerable because they have left abusive relationships,” says Cross. “We will be talking about best practices for providing family court support to women who have left abusive relationships, will examine whether or not these programs make a positive difference for women and their children and will explore public policy implications.”
