NIJ’s Research and Evaluation on the Administration of Justice Program supports rigorous research and evaluation projects examining the impact of court and other criminal justice tools, practices, and policies on the administration of justice and public safety in state, local, and tribal jurisdictions. With the 60th anniversary of Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963), and in collaboration with DOJ’s Office for Access to Justice, NIJ’s research priority in FY2023 is public defense or indigent defense services and equitable access to justice.
