    1. Specialist domestic abuse courts have been implemented in a variety of forms across a wide range of jurisdictions over the past 20 years. Early versions of domestic abuse courts were developed in the United States and Canada in the early to mid-1990s (Hester et al., 2008; Matczak et al., 2011). In England, the first domestic abuse court was established in Leeds in 1999 and by 2010 there were over 140 Specialist Domestic Violence Courts in operation across England and Wales (Home Office, 2010). In Scotland, the first pilot domestic abuse was established in 2004 (Reid Howie Associates, 2007). More recently, pilot domestic abuse courts have been established in Edinburgh and Livingston although these pilots have not yet been evaluated.
