Baum Wins Motion to Intervene on Behalf of Client in Hague Repatriation Case

Professor Jennifer Baum, Director of the Law School’s Child Advocacy Clinic, won a petition to permit  a 15-year-old client to intervene in a repatriation proceeding commenced by her father under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.   In the opinion (070913 Intervention Opinion and ORDER) granting the petition that Professor Baum filed on her client’s behalf, Judge Paul A. Engelmayer, SDNY,  noted that Professor Baum brings a “welcome vigor” to the case by retaining experts and asserting defenses apart from those of the client’s mother.  For more information on the work of the Child Advocacy Clinic click here.
