Standards of Practice for the Supervision of Domestic & Sexual Violence Attorneys
These Standards of Practice for the Supervision of Domestic & Sexual Violence Attorneys arise from a trend that the Commission has noticed in recent years: attorneys representing domestic and sexual violence victims often do not have adequate supervision. In response to this concern, the Commission convened a steering committee, comprised of twenty domestic and sexual violence attorneys from across the country. These standards were borne from the Steering Committee and have been peer reviewed by additional attorneys prior to publication. These Standards are intended to serve as best practice guidelines for the supervision of domestic and sexual violence attorneys in both legal and non-legal settings.
