Domestic Violence Action Center
The members of the Domestic Violence Action Center (DVAC) recognize that domestic violence is a pervasive and ongoing threat to the lives of many women and children. DVAC is a student-run organization that provides advocacy and assistance to survivors of domestic violence seeking orders of protection (Courtroom Assistance Project), uncontested divorces (Uncontested Divorce Project), and legal information and support (Womenslaw.org) under supervision of attorneys. In addition to providing legal advocacy, law students also participate in educational and community service activities.
DVAC enjoys both administrative and financial support from the Law School. Our office is located in Fordham's Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC). DVAC is run by a student Board of Directors and receives additional support from two supervising attorneys and administrative members of the PIRC.
