The Women's Law Caucus at Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington has raised $11,000 for two local organizations working with victims of domestic violence.
Auctioning off packages donated by law school faculty and staff - including a Trivial Pursuit competition and an afternoon of golf with school staff - and packages from local businesses, the caucus raised more than $11,000 for Bloomington's Middle Way House and Protective Order Project at the Feb. 5 auction. This year's auction beat last year's record-setting turnout.
Middle Way House provides extensive support to domestic violence victims, including housing, child care, and legal assistance. The Protective Order Project, co-founded by now-Dean Lauren Robel in 1989, is a student-directed organization based at the law school that combines the legal expertise of faculty, students, and volunteer attorneys to help clients get protective orders, and utilizes other legal methods to help domestic violence victims.
