The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana will host an in-person and virtual training session next month for lawyers interested in receiving training on modest means and pro bono representation of domestic violence victims.

The “Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence Satellite Attorney Recruitment & Training Program” will take place on July 13 at 10 a.m. ET in the Jury Assembly Room of the Birch Bayh Federal Building & U.S. Courthouse in Indianapolis, 46 E. Ohio St., Indianapolis.

A Zoom option will also be available, according to the court’s Wednesday announcement.

The training aims to increase attorney awareness and participation in the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s Satellite Attorney Program, which provides representation and offers free civil legal services to survivors of intimate partner violence.

Kerry Hyatt Bennett, ICADV’s legal counsel, will provide the training, and opening remarks will be given by Southern District of Indiana Chief Judge Tanya Walton Pratt.

According to the news release, “attorneys will gain the knowledge necessary to provide civil legal assistance to survivors of domestic violence for a modest means hourly rate.”

Those interested in attending the free event must be attorneys licensed to practice law in the State of Indiana. Reservation is required and should be sent no later than July 8 to [email protected].

The event provides 1.5 hours of continuing legal education credit.

More information regarding the event can be obtained by contacting Mary Giorgio at [email protected].
