The ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence addresses the acute need to increase the number of well-trained and supported attorneys providing representation to victims by providing creative training opportunities for lawyers, law students, and other legal advocates. 

We are proud to provide expert, comprehensive education for the legal profession, information to the public to change social norms, and advocacy for system reform, all with a focus on serving the needs of marginalized or vulnerable communities.

 You can help us to mobilize the legal profession to increase access to justice for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking!
