On April 25, 2013, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) introduced the Phoenix Law Review Victim's Rights Issue Volume 5 during a Congressional hearing on the proposed National Victims' Bill of Rights. You can view the special edition on HeinOnline.
The Phoenix Law Review members worked on this special edition of the journal related to the new proposed national Victim's Rights Amendment. The law review board also traveled to Washington last April to attend the first of many hearings on the bill.
Phoenix School of Law's Adjunct Professor Steve Twist worked with the Law Review group on the special edition and arranged for them to meet the Arizona delegation to Congress.
