We are excited to announce that after collaborating with Pro Bono Training Institute on a year-long project to include training modules on Domestic Violence Restraining Order Requests (DVROs) on their website, the modules are now up!
Pro Bono Training Institute was created by Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, OneJustice, and Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles to address the need for attorneys to have readily available resources in a central place to use for pro bono work. A year ago, FVAP recognized that PBTI’s website did not yet have training modules on DVROs. We reached out to PBTI to see where we could help and were able to collaborate. These trainings are meant to be of assistance to pro bono attorneys but also a resource for domestic violence advocates and survivors looking for information about the DVRO process.
If you would like to access PBTI’s training modules, visit https://pbtraining.org/course-cat/domestic-violence-restraining-orders-requests/. In order to access the trainings, you will need to select the “Signup to access courses” button and fill out the form. If you are not filling out the form for your organization and are not a presenter, you can select that you are a “trainee.”
