Beyond Criminalization: Public Health, Human Rights, Economic, and Community Responses to Domestic Violence
The Beyond Criminalization Colloquium recognizes that law has not solved the problem of domestic violence and encourages the anti-violence movement to consider economic, public health, community, and human rights perspectives on and possible responses to intimate violence.
The colloquium begins with Leigh Goodmark presenting her new book, Decriminalizing Domestic Violence: A Balanced Policy Approach to Intimate Partner Violence. Leading scholars and practitioners from around the nation who focus on public health, human rights, economics, and community issues will offer reflections and responses and engage with the audience. The afternoon features a participatory strategizing session about how the ideas discussed might be implemented in our communities.
This event is approved for 3.75 hours of Minimum Continuing Legal Education Credit by the State Bar of California. UCI School of Law is a State Bar-approved MCLE provider.
