The mission of the Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women (LRC) is
to improve legal representation for domestic violence survivors. Specifically,
the LRC works to obtain legal representation for domestic violence survivors in
interstate custody cases and to provide technical assistance to domestic
violence victim advocates and attorneys in such cases.
The LRC is working to increase and to improve the legal representation available
to survivors as follows:
- By developing a network of highly qualified attorneys who will represent survivors
- By offering training, support, and Internet-based resources to practitioners
- By encouraging the next generation of attorneys to take these cases through developing curricular materials for law schools
- By working with law firms and the private bar to increase the availability of free or low cost representation for survivors around the country
