Program Webinar Description:

The Families and Children Model Code on Domestic and Family Violence is the title of a groundbreaking and useful document recently released by the National Council and Juvenile and Family Court Judges. It has already been the topic of statewide and national trainings and is now the topic of this month's CLE. The presenters will introduce participants to some of the ten sections, including those in the definition of domestic abuse (including coercive control), ADR, and the best interests of the child. In addition, possible implications within MN as well as opportunities for legislative advocacy will be explored.
