LEGISLATIVE CHANGE

 

"DO YOUR HOMEWORK"

>  Identify the problem—know the "fix" that your are looking for

>  Identify areas of existing laws that could benefit by change

>  Why aren’t the current laws working?

 

 

"RESEARCH AND NETWORK"

>  Research laws in other states

>  Research existing advocacy and professional groups involved with legislative change

(Ex. National Council of Juvenile & Family Court Justices)

>  Network with domestic violence, child protection experts and other associated professionals for legislative tips

>  Network with victims/survivors

>  Network with attorneys on a national basis with expertise in this area of law

>  Network with local attorneys with expertise in this area of law and interest in legislative change

>  Ask about potential downsides to proposed legislative changes
