This course, led by attorney Giugi Carminati, addresses the issues raised by litigating a civil sexual assault case. Rape, sexual assault, and unwanted sexual contact cases are not typical tort cases: they present unique challenges and require practitioners to make unique strategy calls. In order to properly make those calls, lawyers have to understand the gender-based dynamics, the stereotypes that undermine a victim's credibility, and the rules of evidence that specifically address sexually charged cases.
Giugi Carminati is a litigator and intersectional feminist advocate. She is a human and civil rights attorney at NDH, LLC. She practices in state and federal courts and is licensed in Texas, New York, DC, and Colorado. She brings firm but compassionate legal advocacy for her clients. She speaks French, English, Italian and Spanish.
Really great course. I appreciated the substance and also the tone of the presenter. I honestly never give feedback on CLE courses, but this was a particularly excellent one.
The best CLE ever! Incredible job! Thanks.
So nice to have a CLE taught by a strong victim's advocate.
Incredible presentation, every attorney who plans on litigating a sexual assault case should be required to watch that.
Fantastic presentation of very difficult issues. One of the best Lawline courses I have taken.
