Do Court and Legal Services Programs Work:
How Would we Know?
Professor Jim Greiner
The Honorable S. William Green Professor of Public Law,
Faculty Director of the Access to Justice Lab at Harvard Law School
Professor Jim Greiner is The Honorable S. William Green Professor of Public Law and the Faculty Director of the Access to Justice Lab at Harvard Law School.
Professor Greiner currently teaches courses on civil procedure, expert witnesses, and voting regulation. Before coming to the law school in 2007, Jim completed his Ph.D. in statistics at Harvard University.
Prior to this, Jim practiced law for six years, three for the Department of Justice (Programs Branch), three for Jenner & Block. He tried to focus his practice on employment discrimination, voting rights, and the Decennial Census, but alas, he also had to learn how airplanes get on and off aircraft carriers (in the A-12 litigation, originally filed in 1989 and still going), as well as how to deal with structural injunctions in long-running housing desegregation cases. Currently, Jim's research focuses on statistics and litigation, including ecological inference models often used in cases under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act as well as the application of counterfactual frameworks of causation to civil rights issues. His current projects concern redistricting, election administration, causal inference, evaluation of delivery of legal services, and adjudicative system design.
In this talk Professor Greiner will discuss court and legal services programs and their effectiveness. The work being done at the Access to Justice Lab will also be highlighted.
