The Allegheny County Bar Association Federal Court Section presents POWER Act: Pro Bono Representation for Survivors of Domestic Violence
The POWER Act, passed by U.S. Congress in 2019, requires the chief judge for each judicial district to conduct public events to promote pro bono legal services for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The Act also requires the judge to organize public events aimed specifically at survivors belonging to trial organizations, if any live within their jurisdiction. A chief judge must, in conducting public events, seek to maximize the local impact and the provision of high-quality pro bono legal services to survivors, according to the Act. This program will bring awareness to domestic violence situations in the community and provide opportunities for members of the bar to offer pro bono legal services to survivors.
