Legal Connection: Domestic Violence Alliance

Domestic Violence Alliance

KCMBF/A's COVID Response: Historically, free CLE is only available to KCMBA member attorneys as a member benefit.  In order to meet the community's important needs due to the pandemic, KCMBF/A is offering the Domestic Violence Alliance seminar free to all attorneys. We encourage everyone to donate the suggested $25 to assist KCMBF in continuing to give more to the community and help educate those committed to ending domestic violence.

One of KCMBF's three Legal Connection programs, Domestic Violence Alliance (formerly the Domestic Violence & Children Interdisciplinary Conference) is an annual day-long seminar held each October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Under the leadership of KCMBF, various legal, social service, medical and law enforcement agencies across the Kansas City metropolitan area collaborate to plan, promote and attend the seminar aimed at providing essential interdisciplinary information, education and support to these crucial partners who support victims and work to eliminate domestic violence.
