The Department of Justice Canada is leading a research project to assist legal advisers who take on family law cases in supporting clients who have experienced family violence. The project involves the development of a bilingual, evidence- and user-based tool for family law legal advisers with practical suggestions on how to identify and respond to family violence in a way that is safe for the client. The title of the tool is: HELP Toolkit: Identifying and Responding to Family Violence for Family Law Legal Advisers.

Justice Canada will provide a brief overview of the Toolkit, talk about the findings from the user-testing and answer your questions in advance of the launch.
