Standards of Practice in Civil Protection Order Cases

The American Bar Association has recently published its new Standards of Practice for Lawyers Representing Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking in Civil Protection Order Cases. The standards recommend that lawyers become knowledgeable about the dynamics of domestic violence and its intersection with sexual assault and stalking before undertaking representation of a victim in a protection order case. Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid participated in the development of the standards.

The standards are available online at the ABA  (last visited November 9, 2007 bgf)
