Institute for Civil Justice Publications

The RAND Institute for Civil Justice uses empirical and objective research methods to search out the root causes of system problems and identify the best fixes. We find common ground among adversaries, and interpret findings for policymakers. Our work aims to make the system more efficient and equitable for all, protecting society from the economic and social costs of a system that could become arbitrary and capricious.

This conference brought together around 30 judges, scholars, and other observers of the civil justice system to discuss how and whether the American civil justice system might develop a stronger culture of experimentation and reform.
