March 16: Volunteer Training
On March 16, 2016, the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Domestic Violence Legal Services Project trained attorneys, paralegals, and law school students on the proper preparation of the 35-page temporary restraining order petition.
After the training, the seminar’s attendees registered to volunteer at the clinic’s Stanley Mosk Courthouse location, the highest-volume free legal service clinic in California, which helps victims file for protection against their batterers. In 2015, the clinic assisted nearly 5,000 persons.
