The Interdisciplinary Domestic Violence Conference was a joint enterprise hosted between the Faculties of Business and Law, and Health and Life Sciences at De Montfort University, Leicester. It aims were to explore the challenges of securing prevention and protection for domestic violence victims in the legal arena, and to explore legal and community inter-agency relationships. It provided a forum which brought together community professionals, legal practitioners and academics in order to develop a co- operative network to improve communication links between these key stakeholders.

Keynote Speakers (pictured above) included: Rosa Logar, Director Women Against Violence Europe (WAVE), Mandy Burton Professor in Law, Leicester University, Siobhan Blake, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor (DCCP) of Cymru / Wales Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
