Intended to promote pro bono services and empower domestic violence survivors, the Pro bono Work to Empower and Represent (POWER) Act was passed on September 4, 2018. The COVID-19 pandemic has created a worldwide surge in domestic violence. Now, more than ever, it is important for attorneys to step up and provide much needed legal services to domestic violence survivors. Studies have shown that access to legal assistance and representation can increase the likelihood of obtaining a protective order and reduce the probability of future domestic violence. This CLE looks at what has been accomplished since the POWER Act was passed and what you can do to be a part of the movement.
