Are you stumped by emojis? Do you want to know more on how to assess technology evidence? The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) are excited to announce that registration is now open for our free Cyberviolence Judicial Workshop for judges and judicial officers.
What is it?
This first ever workshop offers hands-on, highly interactive judicial education on understanding and assessing technology-facilitated domestic violence cases. Topics will include:
• Technology Foundations in the Context of Domestic Violence
• Technology Misuse Dynamics
• Electronic Discovery and Evidence
• Technology Responsive Dispositions and Enforcement
• Judicial Ethics and Leadership in Cyberviolence Cases
Using hypothetical case problems, role-play exercises, small group discussions, and faculty demonstrations will enable judges from different jurisdictions and levels of experience to learn from one another. This training is appropriate for new and experienced state, tribal, and territorial judges and judicial officers to enhance their skills in handling civil and criminal cases involving cyberviolence.
Because this is a pilot workshop, participants will also have the opportunity to provide input on the training for future workshops.
When and where is the workshop?
April 7 – 10, 2019

Why you should attend!
The need for this content is clear. Many judges have told us:
“Cyberviolence is the fastest growing area of abuse in DV.”
“Judges need to be the leaders in their jurisdiction regarding the use of technology and the law.”
Although this is a pilot workshop, the feedback we’ve received so far have been very positive. Including:
“This [curriculum] is awesome. Reading through this caused me to learn a lot that I didn't previously know and caused me to give thought to things that I had not considered before. Very comprehensive. Great work.”
Finally, facilitators for this workshop (which include judges) are experts in their field. As for NNEDV and NCJFCJ workshops, judges have said:
“I have worked with NNEDV’s Safety Net Project for many years and know firsthand of their expertise in the intersection of technology and all forms of violence. They have extensive experience in creating dynamic training curricula and helpful resources, specifically on the issues of cyberviolence and technology abuse.”
"[Attending this NCJFCJ workshop] was an invaluable experience, containing an amazing amount of relevant, thought-provoking, and practical information."
"[This NCJFCJ] seminar was the best I have ever attended as a lawyer or judge!!"
We value access and safety and strive to make our meetings accessible and welcoming to all participants. We have selected a hotel with a commitment to access, meeting room and areas will be set to allow for maximum space and access, all faculty members have been provided with guidance on making their presentations accessible, and all meeting materials are provided in 14-point font. We also provide auxiliary aids and services to meet the individual needs of those attending the meeting.
