Impact of Current Projects and Programs

Each year, the American Bar Foundation (ABF) continues to serve the bar, the bench, the legal academy, and the broader community by bringing first-class research to bear upon critical issues facing the legal profession and society at large. By conducting projects of unmatched scale, quality, and methodological rigor on topics of fundamental and current interest, ABF research is at the forefront of policy-relevant research on law, legal institutions, and legal processes. Moreover, ABF researchers are widely recognized as thought leaders in their respective specialties.

The following is a report on the impact of current programs and projects. As a note, the list is representative but not exhaustive; we have also categorized the projects within our three broad areas of research:

  • Learning and Practicing Law
  • Protecting Rights, Accessing Justice
  • Making and Implementing Law
