The Value of Research
“In the long run, legal aid programs’ investment in randomized study will not only improve services and help direct scarce resources, but will also build public support.
The willingness of the legal aid movement to question itself and change in response will demonstrate to the wider world that our work is, in the end, focused on doing the best we can to help very poor people, in often-desperate circumstances, to improve their lives.”
