In Their Shoes

1 hour of CE for registered neutrals (GA) & 1 hour of general CLE for Georgia attorneys

Session Information


Every year in Georgia, more than 40,000 victims report experiencing domestic violence. ADR professionals encounter these victims every day, but many struggle to understand the barriers that victims face and the choices that they make. This interactive workshop, presented by Niki Lemeshka, will feature an activity which will allow participants to understand the limited options available to victims and will conclude with a discussion of how ADR professionals can be part of a coordinated community response to support survivors in their journey towards a life free from domestic violence.

In-person attendees can join Niki for In Their Shoes in Conference Room A:

9:55am to 10:55am

This session will NOT be live-streamed to virtual attendees.
