In April 2014, Professor Beth Posner, who currently teaches the Immigration Clinic, conducted a two-day CLE (continuing legal education program) on "Litigation Training: Representing Victims of Domestic Violence in Custody Cases." This interactive program provided training in North Carolina custody and domestic violence law as well as litigation skills for practicing attorneys, enabling them to more effectively, ethically, and holistically represent victims of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault. Forty-six attorneys from across North Carolina participated, the majority at a reduced fee in exchange for a commitment to take on a pro bono family law case on behalf of a victim of domestic violence. Prof. Posner was the organizer of this event and worked with partnering agencies, including the North Carolina Bar Association; the American Bar Association Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence; and Legal Aid of North Carolina. The CLE was held at the Bar Center in Cary, NC. More information on this training can be found at: http://gateway.ncbar.org/store/seminar/seminar.php?seminar=24787.
Prof. Posner regularly teaches for the ABA Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence across the U.S. and at their offices in Washington, D.C. Most recently she taught in their CLE, "Integration of Interpreters in Civil Protection Order Cases of Victims of Domestic, Sexual & Stalking Violence", and in the fall she will be teaching in their CLE: "Representing Victims of Intimate Partner Sexual Violence in Civil Litigation.
