The Hague Domestic Violence Project has seen its way from its inception at Seattle University School of Law's Access to Justice Institute to its new base at the University of California, Berkeley, via the University of Minnesota. Along the way, we have garnered support from a number of individuals and organizations, without whom we would still be a grand idea in our founders' minds. Below is a mention of a few organizations who have recently supported us and whom we would like to specially thank for all that they have provided to us.
National Institute of Justice
The National Institute of Justice has provided funding to our project under Grant 2006-WG-BX-0006 to perform extensive research on the effects of these cases on the parties involved. The financial support provided our researchers the ability to meet with mothers and attorneys. The information our researchers gathered can be found on the Project Reports section of this site.
The Hague Domestic Violence Project would like to thank FindLaw and West, Thomson Reuters businesses. FindLaw has provided us with a steady and dedicated volunteer base, as well as approval to use company resources in creating our newly transformed Web site. West has granted FindLaw employees free access to Westlaw to perform case research, as well as permission to post those cases here for your review.
The Hague Domestic Violence Project was also honored by Thomson Reuters in 2008, as we were chosen to be a recipient of a Community Champion Award. This award recognizes Thomson Reuters employees who have made a significant social impact in a community in which the company does business. Pictured below are several of our FindLaw volunteers holding the award check.

Minnesota Justice Foundation
We are grateful to the Minnesota Justice Foundation for organizing and supporting volunteer law student opportunities. Our volunteer law students are pivotal in our ability to provide you with the information you require to make it through your Hague Convention case.
