Domestic Violence Action Center

The members of the Domestic Violence Action Center (DVAC) recognize that domestic violence is a pervasive and ongoing threat to the lives of many women and children. DVAC is a student-run organization that assists victims of domestic violence with family court matters. In addition to providing legal advocacy, law students also participate in educational and community service activities.

DVAC enjoys both administrative and financial support from the Law School. Our office is located in Fordham’s Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC). DVAC is run by a student Board of Directors and receives additional support from two supervising attorneys and administrative members of the PIRC.
