The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic (BSCC) in collaboration with the Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children (CREVWC), will conduct research on and develop a partner violence risk assessment tool to help women survivors of abuse navigate the family court system. The BSCC and CREVWC will also create a training toolkit for the different stakeholders in the family courts. This grant will benefit women survivors of abuse, family law practitioners and family court staff and concludes in 2020. This grant furthers access to justice by providing legal actors with the tools to recognize gender-based violence from the moment a survivor reaches out to the family justice system.
