2020 POWER Act* Event

Monday, August 17, 2020

Please join us for a live interactive webinar as we strive to identify the challenges faced by domestic violence survivors during the pandemic, the legal resources that are available throughout the district, as well as the existing and developing pro bono opportunities focused on survivors of domestic violence.  This webinar is an opportunity to connect with lawyers throughout the Southern District as we focus on this important issue.  1.5 CLE credit pending.

This event is hosted by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Federal Bar Association, Ohio State Legal Services Association, Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati and Greater Dayton Volunteer Lawyers Project.  *The Pro Bono Work to Empower and Represent Act of 2018 (the “POWER Act”), aims to help victims and survivors of domestic violence gain access to pro bono legal services. Under the Act, the Chief Judge in each judicial district must host at least one public event annually to promote pro bono services to empower survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
