National Crime Victims' Rights Week Brown Bag Webinar: Best Practices for State Victims' Rights Legal Services Programs

Event Dates
In observation of National Crime Victims' Rights Week, NOVA is offering a series of three brown bag webinars.

Ohio's victims' rights constitutional amendment, Marsy's Law, passed in November 2017, and went into effect on February 5, 2018. Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center (OCVJC) has led the efforts to successfully provide guidance to implement the constitutional amendment, draft legislation to clarify and expand the constitutional provisions, and litigate Marsy's Law rights across the state from the trial courts to the Ohio Supreme Court. OCVJC will provide guidance, suggestions, and concrete examples to assist attendees in implementing Marsy's Law and other victims' rights laws in their states. OCVJC will also discuss how their work, including legislation, has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
