The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 received Royal Assent on the  29th April 2021. You don’t need me to tell you how important this piece of legislation will be to criminal practitioners. Training of some sort this year should be a priority.

It’s August and we fully appreciate that many of you will be away and unable to attend the live presentation itself but will most certainly benefit from the set of the notes and the recording.

We now have a private YouTube channel whereby, upon receiving the email with the link, you can watch the hour-long recording of this session at your leisure.

If you cannot attend the presentation, a copy of the recording is also available to download afterwards AT NO EXTRA COST.

THE SESSION WILL BE FULLY RECORDED AND YOU CAN HAVE IT AS A USEFUL RESOURCE ON YOUR COMPUTER/TABLET/SMART-PHONE
