The Court Watch Project is a federally funded project through the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, Justice for Families Program. The project is funded from 10/1/15 through 9/30/18. The Court Watch Project is coordinated and implemented by a paid part-time coordinator, a Leadership Team comprised of three SLEVAWN members and volunteer monitors in which court proceedings in the St. Louis Circuit Courts are monitored. That information is made available to the court, the Bar and the public to ensure transparency and to give victims a greater voice in how the court processes domestic violence cases. The Court Watch Project Coordinator and volunteers attend court on specific days to observe Civil Protection Order cases and record case outcomes on a form.

Volunteers are needed to assist in monitoring dockets on Thursday mornings and afternoons in both St. Louis City and St. Louis County Adult Abuse dockets. Dockets are typically 2-3 hours in length. No court experience or knowledge needed as training will be provided. We ask for a committment of one docket per month but volunteers may sign up for more slots.

There will be a training on November 18th from 830-1pm for all new volunteers to attend.

Great opportunity for interns, individuals needing service hours and volunteers wanting to give back to the community through systemic change. Contact Nina Balsam the Courtwatch Coordinator at
