Battered Women's Legal Advocacy Project (BWLAP)
BWLAP is a state-wide program that serves battered women, their advocates, attorneys and the general public in Minnesota. BWLAP provides legal information, consultation, state-wide training, litigation support, technical assistance and develops model policy for domestic violence programs around confidentiality, record keeping, conflict of interest and children's records, to name a few. We are a unique agency that advocates for system change, advocates to secure access to justice and, advocates to improve the legal system's response to battered women and children. We exist to respond effectively to the constantly evolving legal needs of battered women and we are the first resource people turn to in a legal crisis. BWLAP recognizes the importance of an effective and skilled advocate to support battered women.
