Description

Join us at the 2017 Domestic Assault Review Team Conference, which will focus on The Impact of Domestic Violence on Children. Lunch and refreshments will be provided as well as an opportunity for networking.

Pamela Cross, Legal Director of Luke's Place Support and Resource Centre, will discuss family law in the context of domestic violence, particularly how the processes and outcomes impact children.

Pamela Cross is a feminist lawyer; a well-known and respected expert on violence against women and the law for her work as a researcher, writer, educator and trainer. She is the Legal Director of Luke’s Place Support and Resource Centre in Durham Region, where she leads the organization’s provincial projects, including research, training and advocacy.

Pamela’s most recent paper is “When Shared Parenting and the Safety of Women and Children Collide,” published in 2016.

In her role as Luke’s Place Legal Director, Pamela is the lead trainer for Ontario’s Family Court Support Workers, providing both in-person and online training and support for approximately 100 frontline workers who assist abused women in family court. She recently completed a 3-year contract with Legal Aid Ontario, in which she developed and delivered domestic violence awareness training to legal aid staff, community clinics and lawyers across the province. She is also a member of the Violence Against Women Roundtable, which provides guidance to the provincial government on this issue.

Pamela is a 2015 recipient of the Attorney General’s Victim Services Award of Distinction for her work on the issue of violence against women.
