Nature of Research: The Center on Civil Justice was created as a research and policy organization with a goal of improving the US civil justice system. We have several research projects that an RA might work on. We have an ongoing project to make currently privately-held data on class action lawsuits publicly available. We are constructing a document database for litigation funding and may ask an RA to help in its creation. We are also developing several new projects, including conducting data analysis on the effectiveness (and effects) of rules of civil procedure. In addition, we are open to project proposals by RAs (and RA applicants) that fit within the Center’s mission statement.
