**START BY BELIEVING: EFFECTIVE REPRESENTATION OF VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT TRAINING

Sexual assault continues to be prevalent in our society. It is estimated that over 18% of all women and nearly 2% of all men will experience rape during their lifetime. 5% of both men and women report sexual violence other than rape, and 13% of women and 6% of men report experiencing some form of sexual coercion. Of female rape victims, most will be first victimized before the age of eighteen. Like all victims of crime, victims of sexual assault encounter a myriad of issues through no fault of their own as a result of the crime, and many of these needs require legal assistance to address. Victims are often exposed to harassment in their personal lives as well as in the workplace. Many find it necessary to seek restraining orders against their perpetrators. Victims who are in relationships with their perpetrators or have children in common with the perpetrator may need assistance seeking divorce or child custody. Many experience housing and employment issues, which could range from homelessness, being evicted from their housing, suffering disciplinary actions at work. Solutions to these issues commonly require legal advocacy. Victims of crime in Mississippi are afforded a number of rights, and it is the goal of the MS Attorney General’s Office to ensure that these rights are protected and that victims have access to affordable legal assistance provided by attorneys who have specialized knowledge in the area. The Bureau of Victim Assistance will be hosting ten (10) CLE seminars across the state addressing the issue of effective legal representation of victims of sexual assault. Topics will include myths and misconceptions about sexual assault, the impact of trauma on the neurobiology of the brain, trauma-informed and victim centered screening and interview techniques and state laws and protections afforded to victims, nuts and bolts of protection orders and restraining orders, and new movements in the prevention of sexual assault. Six (6) hours of continuing education credits, including one (1) hour of ethics, will be provided. Click HERE to view/print the AGENDA in adobe pdf.

  • May 24, 2018 – Greenville, Mississippi
  • June 7, 2018 – Gulfport, Mississippi
  • July 12, 2018 – Grenada, Mississippi

  • August 16, 2018 – Starkville, Mississippi
  • September 27, 2018 – Jackson, Mississippi
  • *A date in Tupelo, Mississippi is also anticipated.
