Trauma-Informed Law 

The Trauma-Informed Lawyer Certification is the first of its kind- offering attorneys tools to work with clients in crisis and to safeguard themselves from the impacts
of secondary trauma. This certification blends trauma-informed care theory with real-world application customized to the realities of what lawyers and their clients face in navigating legal systems and judicial realities.

The National Center for Equity and Agency offers the only Trauma-Informed Law Certification for attorneys and law firms in the United States. This certification goes far beyond trauma-informed 101 and gives participants a number of unique advantages:


  • Participants leave as distinguished experts in how trauma impacts their clients and how to use TI principles for self-preservation and sustainability.

  • Attorneys who use these practices can increase client satisfaction, improve case outcomes, increase client retention and referrals.

  • Firms and lawyers who are certified can advertise their certification to differentiate their practice and become the go-to source for referrals from advocates in their area while sharing with potential clients a core reason to choose them as their representation.
