Luke’s Place provides family law expertise at the national level
On January 17, 2014, Luke’s Place delivered a webinar entitled, “Family law and violence against women,” hosted by the Canadian Women’s Foundation, to service providers across the country.
Designed for a national audience, the webinar provided family law information that was relevant regardless of jurisdiction.
Luke’s Place Legal Director, Pamela Cross, introduced participants to the impact of violence within the family on women’s experiences with family court, providing a framework for frontline workers who support women through this process.
Her presentation offered basic, introductory information about separation violence and its impact on women as family court litigants, legal bullying and court-related safety issues and touched on intersections between family law and both criminal and immigration law.
