National Crime Victim Law Institute

As a national 501(c)(3) legal education and advocacy organization based at Lewis & Clark Law School, NCVLI has provided access to justice through victim-centered legal advocacy for more than 20 years.

NCVLI envisions a justice system in which every crime victim has:

  • Comprehensive and meaningful legal rights;
  • Access to a trained victims’ rights attorney at no cost; and
  • Rights that are recognized and enforced.

NCVLI advocates for all survivors, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, religion, immigrant status, or ability.
