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.
