The American Judges Association proudly announces the newly developed and free online domestic violence education program for judges. This innovative learning tool was developed with the assistance of Futures Without Violence and the National Center for State Courts. Using interactive web-based delivery methods, “Effective Adjudication of Domestic Abuse Cases” explores the unique dynamics of domestic violence, including assessing lethality and dangerousness, custody and protective orders, special evidentiary issues, and effective sentencing.
