A big step forward. These wonderful job opportunities at the new Harvard Law Access to Justice Research Lab established by Jim Greiner. This from Jim:
The Access to Justice Lab is a startup effort, with sufficient funding in hand for three years, headed by Jim Greiner at Harvard Law School. The Lab will produce randomized control trials (“RCTs”) directly involving courts and lawyers, particularly in the areas of access to justice and court administration (including agency adjudication). It will also combat the legal profession’s current hostility to RCTS through short courses, publications, presentations, and other methods. The Lab is hiring a Research Director, a Research Associate (Field), and a half-time Research Associate (Data). Lab personnel will be trained and expected to produce their own interventions and RCTs and, after sufficient time, to create their own self-sustaining research agendas at other institutions (including legal academia). See the links below for the position announcements. Contact Jim Greiner, jgreiner(at)law.harvard.edu, for further information.
So spread these great opportunities around.
I look forward to reporting more on the vision and activities of the Lab.
