Professor Lois R. Lupica’s Consumer Financial Distress Research Study is the Signature Study for the newly launched Access to Justice Lab at Harvard Law School. Professor Lupica is a co-PI on the Study with Jim Greiner of Harvard Law School and Dalié Jiménez of University of Connecticut Law School. The Consumer Financial Distress Research Study is a randomized control trial examining the efficiency of the small claims court system, the consequences of various legal intervention programs and the value of financial education.
According to the Access to Justice Lab’s website:
“The Lab will work to produce rigorous evidence of what works, by incorporating evidence-based thinking and learning from other fields and by implementing creative interventions and randomized control trail fields.”
The Lab is dedicated to transforming adjudicatory administration and engagement with the courts into evidence-based fields.
Lois R. Lupica, Maine Law Foundation Professor of Law at the University of Maine School of Law, is an affiliate of the Access to Justice Lab in the area of Financial Distress. She is a nationally recognized scholar in the areas of consumer and commercial credit and bankruptcy law.
