Intimate Partner Violence Foundations: Moving Towards Justice

This webinar is part of a 10-episode podcast-style series focused on the foundational elements of prosecuting intimate partner violence cases (IPV).  In each episode, AEquitas Attorney Advisor Jane Anderson engages in conversations with other AEquitas staff, former prosecutors with years of experience prosecuting IPV. 

In this episode, Jane and Attorney Advisor Patti Powers discuss how motions practice can protect victims and advance prosecutions. They explore methods for analyzing cases to determine issues suitable for pretrial motion practice; ways to educate judges on novel legal and factual issues; and strategies for litigating motions to promote victim safety and privacy.

At the conclusion of this presentation, viewers will be better able to:

  • File pretrial motions consistent with litigation strategy;
  • Educate the judge; and
  • Focus on protecting victims and holding the offender accountable.
