Victim advocates provide invaluable legal services, including advocating for victims’ rights and guardianship, reviewing related legislation, crisis intervention, and counseling victims of assault, battery, robbery, domestic violence, child abuse and other crimes. Instruction from CLS relates to a broad range of topics, including those areas of law in which victim advocates are most in-demand.

As a trained crime victim advocate, you may work with:

  • Domestic violence shelters
  • Crisis centers
  • Crisis hotlines
  • State and county government agencies

Upon graduation from the course, you will be eligible for the Provisional Credential through the National Advocacy Credentialing Program (NACP) in affiliation with the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA).
