Licensed Legal Advocates Program for Legal Support

Part of a blog post for University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law.

Survivors of domestic violence in Arizona will have a new resource to support them in civil legal matters, thanks to a unique pilot program created by the Innovation for Justice Program at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, in partnership with the Arizona Supreme Court and Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse.

From fall 2020 to fall 2021, the pilot program will evaluate civil legal assistance provided by Licensed Legal Advocates. Licensed Legal Advocates are a new tier of legal professionals who are not licensed attorneys but who will be equipped to provide legal advice to domestic violence survivors with respect to critical domestic-violence-related legal issues, such as the need for a protective order, divorce, child custody, consumer protection or housing assistance.

The Licensed Legal Advocates in the pilot program are social services professionals already trained to work with trauma victims. As part of the pilot, they will receive legal training to advise domestic violence survivors. Read more
