Led by Haley Hrymak with the generous support from the Law Foundation of BC, this research undertaken between April 2021 and March 2022. In this research, we asked: Is there a way to modify
courthouses and court processes to make survivors less susceptible to violence by their abuser?
To answer our research question, we conducted a literature review, interviewed 25 key informants,
and surveyed 25 lawyers attending courthouses in smaller communities in BC. Our findings were
evaluated by lawyers, court users, and advocates (31 in total).
This report details 25 recommendations for positive changes in courthouses in BC.
