As many of you know, the Access to Justice Lab at Harvard Law School is an initiative to try to further evidence-based thinking within access to justice and court administration.
It focuses on conducting randomized field experiments to find out what works and on incorporating lessons from non-law fields into law.
It has randomized experiments underway on self-help with the legal aspects of debt, pretrial risk assessment scores, reduction of debt collection lawsuit default rates, divorce, and federal court mediation, with projects on triage of domestic violence victims and service of process in guardianship proceedings in planning.
The A2J Lab is looking for a full-time researcher. For details, please see here or here.
