Court Watch Volunteer Training


The St. Louis Ending Violence Against Women Network (SLEVAWN) Court Watch Project is recruiting volunteer monitors to observe courtrooms where civil domestic violence cases are being heard and monitor the proceedings in an effort to research any problem patterns and issues within the court system.  The project is funded by the US Department of Justice.

The Court Watch Project is a community-based initiative within the court system to help improve court processes regarding Order of Protection hearings.  The mission of the Court Watch Project is to make the justice system more effective and responsive in handling cases of domestic violence perpetrated against women and children and to create a more informed and involved public.

      City Adult Abuse Docket– Thursdays from 9:00am to approximately 12 noon

      County Adult Abuse Docket– Wednesdays from 9:00am to approximately 12 noon

Mondays from 1:30pm to approximately 4:00pm
