What Magistrates Need to Know About Domestic Violence

This is a new course designed to educate magistrates on a broad array of issues related to domestic violence. In addition to sessions focusing on criminal law and procedure, the course will include informational and pragmatic sessions designed to assist magistrates in making specific improvements in the performance of their responsibilities in this area.  This training will include an optional three-hour session related to issuing ex parte domestic violence protective orders (sometimes called "50B orders"). 

The online application period is now closed for this program.  If you wish to be placed on our waitlist for this course, please email Gail Wilkins at wilkins@sog.unc.edu.
