Please Welcome Gabrielle Davis to BWJP!
Before joining the Battered Women’s Justice Project, Gabrielle was a Clinical Professor of Law at the University of Toledo College of Law. She founded and directed the Domestic Violence Clinic at the law school where she and her students provided comprehensive legal representation to victims and survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault. Gabrielle chaired the Lucas County, Ohio domestic violence fatality review team, conducted community-based domestic violence research, and helped shape domestic violence policy within the local criminal and civil justice systems.
Gabrielle’s training and experience lends itself to her work on our custody project, which explores how the crafting of custody orders and parenting plans could more effectively address safety issues related to domestic violence, child abuse/neglect and child sexual abuse.
