A while back, we posted information on a proposed idea at Harvard Law School that was seeking to "staff-up" (here). I am delighted to report that the "idea" has now launched as an up-and-running program--Harvard Law School's Access to Justice Lab. According to Research Director Chris Griffin, the Lab, affiliated with HLS's Center on the Legal Profession, is a "venture for developing evidence-based solutions to problems of court administration and legal services provision. Our goal is to understand, using randomized control trials, what methods truly enhance engagement with and efficiency in the system." The Lab's mission includes: "combat[ing] resistance among the bench and bar to rigorous empirical thinking about the U.S. legal system, and to study it using the gold standard of randomized field experiments." Those interested in learning more about the Lab and its work should visit its website, follow on Facebook or Twitter, or subscribe to the blog.
