June Webinars from BWJP ~ Extreme Risk Laws: An Overview
Wednesday 20, 2018/5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST​

Content: This webinar is intended to inform individuals who work with survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) about Extreme Risk Protection Orders, and provide an opportunity to explore the implications of these orders for survivors of IPV. As these are relatively new laws, the impact of their application in the domestic violence context is still unclear. Developed in 2013 by the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy, Extreme Risk Laws, also known as "Gun Violence Restraining Orders" or "Extreme Risk Protective Orders," allow family and household members and/or law enforcement officers to petition a judicial officer to temporarily prohibit firearm purchase and possession and/or require firearm removal from persons who are at an elevated risk of harming themselves or others. As of April 2018, 8 states have enacted Extreme Risk Laws; Connecticut, Indiana, California, Washington, Oregon, Vermont, Florida and Maryland.
 
This webinar will offer a brief overview of Extreme Risk Laws enacted to date and the policy rationale of such laws by one of the preeminent legal experts in the area. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss how application of these orders to domestic violence-related cases might be beneficial or problematic: are these orders a promising path to safety, or do they expose survivors of domestic violence to heightened risk and loss of autonomy?

Presenter: Kelly Roskam, Legal Director of the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence
