The ABA Section of Litigation invites applications to The Litigation Research Fund which makes individual awards of between $5,000 and $20,000 to support original and practical scholarly work that significantly advances the understanding of civil litigation in the United States. The Fund was established in 2007 to support research and writing projects relevant to litigation policy and practice, with preference given to works with an empirical foundation. The first two rounds of funding resulted in thirteen grants totaling approximately $140,000. Priority will be given to applications received by February 28, 2009.
