Workshop on Empirical Approaches to Access to Justice
Symposiast Jim Greiner passes along the following call for applications:
Working together across the lines of scholarship and practice, a group of researchers and field professionals in access to civil justice (A2J) in the United States is soliciting applications to attend a two-day Workshop to be held in Chicago, Illinois on December 7-8, 2012. The Workshop opens with a poster session and town hall meeting on the afternoon of Friday, December 7. This open session, held in conjunction with the National Legal Aid and Defender Association annual meetings, will bring together scholars and practitioners from many perspectives to identify and explore access to justice research needs. On the following day, Saturday, December 8, the Workshop will convene a smaller, closed session to push forward the work of revitalizing A2J research. We are grateful to the National Science Foundation Law and Social Sciences Program (SES-1237958) for recommending financial support.
The application materials are here: NSF Workshop Application. Jim encourages all interested parties – which should include anyone who is interested in empirically examining access to justice issues – to apply.
