Title: Two Proposed Field RCTs in the Law

Abstract: This talk will consist of a presentation of two proposed
randomized control trials (“RCTs”) in the legal setting.  The first
concerns triage of legal services in the context of intimate partner
violence prevention.  The RCT will deploy a double-randomization scheme to
compare results of human (professional) triaging to random triaging.  The
second study concerns the legal aspects of severe financial distress.  It
will deploy a saturated two-by-two design contrasting (i) self-help
materials versus an offer of attorney representation, and (ii) financial
counseling delivered via the Internet or the telephone versus financial
counseling delivered via a paper packet.  For the latter RCT, results of a
pilot study will be presented.
