    The goal of the overall training is to provide participants with information and resources to enhance their advocacy and trial skills. Participants will examine the roles of the advocate and the attorney in working with victims of intimate partner violence. Through the use of scenarios, demonstrations, interactive discussion, role-play, and mock hearings, participants will enhance their advocacy and trial skills. Topics will include full faith and credit, interstate custody, domestic violence related firearm prohibitions and other issues relevant to the issuance, service, and enforcement of protection orders.  The LRC will present on interstate custody.
