Henry Nicholas speaks with Doug Beloof and Meg Garvin from the National Crime Victim Law Institute. More than 75 attorneys participated in a groundbreaking training seminar Jan. 28 on Marsy’s Law, California’s Constitutional Amendment to protect victims’ rights, at the UC Irvine School of Law. The seminar, which offered Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit to lawyers, was the first of its kind to provide attorneys with adequate training on victims’ rights and then recruit them to become crime victim advocates in the California judicial system. The event was co-hosted by UCI Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Henry Nicholas, co-founder of Broadcom Corporation and sponsor and co-author of Marsy’s Law. Henry Nicholas, whose sister Marsy was murdered in 1983, is the founder of Marsy’s Law for All, established last year to help unify and expand the victims’ rights movement nationwide.
