We work with a variety of partners, including academic researchers, legal service providers, and courts, to design randomized control trials to test access to justice programs in areas of labour and employment law.
Each study is a joint effort between courts, legal service providers, and researchers. The Lab works with everyone to create studies that work for everyone.
To assure that our methods and data reach the legal professionals and lawmakers to transform the Botswana legal profession, we speak at major conferences and hold our own events. We make all of our publications and, as much as legally possible, all of our data publicly available.
Train current and future practitioners, scholars, and judges in methods and results to increase capacity and support for rigorous empirical research. Our best hope for transformative change is equipping the next generation of leaders in the field with the belief in research and the skills to implement credible data in their work
