OCVJC Victims’ Rights Training is a FREE four- hour comprehensive, multi-disciplinary training that informs trainees about the legal rights of victims and the ethical obligations of those assisting them. The training includes a focus on access to justice for crime victims. Many of these rights have changed with the passage of 2017’s Issue 1, Marsy’s Law. This training will update criminal justice system officials and related professionals on these changes to victims’ constitutional and statutory rights.
