Baum Honored by Children’s Law Center

On October 22nd, Professor Jennifer Baum was honored by the Children’s Law Center of New York for her volunteer work on an international child abduction case brought under the Hague Convention in the Eastern District of New York.  Professor Baum’s work on behalf of four of the six subject children resulted in the children remaining safely with their mother, who had brought them to New York after fleeing a cult in Guatemala.  The children ranged in age from six to 12.  Professor Baum provided litigation support and Hague Convention child abduction expertise to the Children’s Law Center’s representation of the children in Federal and State court proceedings.
