U.S. Department of Justice's Request for Research on Indigent Defense
Maha Jweied, Senior Counsel, Access to Justice Initiative
Nadine Frederique, Social Science Analyst, NIJ

How we do that is of course varied, but one important aspect is the research that's needed to identify solutions to indigent defense, and that's why the solicitation is so important.
