NAGTRI Announces 2021 Fellows

NAGTRI Announces 2021 Fellows

This year’s class was slated to attend in June 2020 but, given the changed circumstances resulting from COVID-19, they instead will participate in 2021. Each year, NAGTRI strives to ensure diversity in all forms in every International Fellows class. This year, we accomplished this goal again by selecting a group of 20 attorneys from a pool of highly qualified candidates who specialize in various aspects of civil and criminal law, all of whom have experience working directly on domestic and sexual violence matters. The class includes government attorneys who are experienced gender-based, victim-focused, domestic violence or sexual assault prosecutors, policymakers, or attorneys who advise officials and government agencies on regulatory and enforcement mechanisms in furtherance of public health and safety. NAGTRI looks forward to welcoming and meeting the incoming class next year.
