Research Assistance for Judges

The Avon Global Center accepts requests from judges around the world to conduct pro bono legal research on issues relating to gender justice.  Such requests may support a judge's adjudication of a case, development of courtroom procedures, or activities outside of the courtroom.  Requests are treated as presumptively confidential and a judge is welcome to make a request without divulging confidential details.  Research may include drafting legal research memoranda; preparing training materials or guides; and sometimes engaging in long-term projects.

For examples of memoranda prepared in response to judicial requests, please click here.

To submit a request for legal research assistanceplease send us an email. Once a judge submits a request, a Center staff member will contact her or him to confirm whether we can handle the request and to set a timeline for delivery of the work-product.
