Course description

Domestic Abuse Legislation in Light of the Domestic Abuse Act 2020

This course is designed to assist practitioners in domestic abuse with the knowledge and skills to be able to provide appropriate support, guidance, and advice to those who will need to seek protection through criminal, civil/ family courts.

The law on Domestic abuse is about to change, and while some of the old law will remain in place, aspects of legislation will be amended or repealed by the 2020 Act

Delegates will learn the differences between the current and proposed legal frameworks, evidential tests and court procedure between the criminal and family courts.

There will also be additional duties and powers afforded to public bodies, including health, social care and housing- all responsible to the newly appointed Domestic Abuse Commissioner.

The course will help identify which applications, remedies and orders can be sort from each court and what they provide by way of safeguarding protection to the victims of domestic abuse, as well as an understating on the future expectation of statutory and voluntary agencies.

Suitability - Who should attend?

All practitioners in domestic abuse including apprentices, trainees, qualified solicitors, advocates and legal execs.
