We are a growing group of lawyers who specialise in representing victims of crime. Our aim is to improve awareness of the legal needs and rights of victims of crime in Europe, including the needs of victims in cross-border cases.
VOCAL’s lawyers meet and hold training events in different countries in Europe three times a year. VOCAL does a number of things in and outside those meetings:
Provides an opportunity for specialist Victims’ lawyers to come together to share experiences.
Runs educational events on how lawyers can improve the legal help that victims receive.
Liaises with and provides assistance to Victim Support Europe.
