Family Violence Litigation Students Educating Future Doctors

View Archives


Albany Law School and Albany Medical College students continue to discuss the ways sexual assault, domestic violence, and intimate partner violence affect individuals and their care.

During April's Sexual Violence Awareness Month, Danielle Salazar ’23 and Chloe Ross ‘23 who work in the Family Violence Litigation Clinic (FVLC) within the Justice Center here at Albany Law School worked with Isha Doshi and Drishti Patel from Albany Medical College to present, "Maternal Fetal Complications and IPV," on April 4.


The presentation is a follow up to last year's, "Intimate Partner Violence: The Role of the Physician," which was presented as part of the medical college's student-led Community Grand Rounds.


FVLC Director and Professor Hayat Bearat assisted the students with the presentation. The projects aim to fill the gaps in care for survivors of domestic violence starting by educating practitioners who assist them.
