Welcome to the National Crime Victim Law Institute

Protecting, Enforcing & Advancing Victims’ Rights

What we Do

NCVLI actively promotes comprehensive and enforceable legal rights for crime victims, and access to knowledgeable attorneys to help protect those rights in every case through victim centered legal advocacy, education, and resources.

Ask for Rights:

Turning Knowledge into Action

Victims have rights federally and in every state. We need to start by knowing victims’ rights, but we can’t stop there.
