On the morning of September 16th 2019, a group of 15 attorneys from the State of California, USA, visited APAV’s headquarters in Lisbon. The group of attorneys will spend the week visiting different parts of the country on a trip organized by CLE Abroad, a provider of personalized educational travel programs.
The visit to Portugal began at APAV with a guided tour of the Lisbon Victim Support Office followed by a presentation on the Portuguese criminal proceedings and the victim’s role. The visit ended with a discussion session during which the participants had the opportunity to pose questions about the Portuguese legal framework, the implementation of victims' rights and APAV's work. APAV would like to thank all attorneys present for their interest in the Association’s work and to CLE Abroad for providing this unique opportunity as well as for the contribution it made to APAV in the end of the visit.
We wish the whole group a pleasant stay in Portugal.
