For a number of years now, the Indigent Defense Research Association has hosted a set of panels at the American Society of Criminology to highlight work in the area of indigent defense research. This year, IDRA is doing the same. IDRA will be hosting a total of nine panels covering the nexus of defense provision, data collection, and policy advocacy. They include evaluations of new programs, discussions about data collection and research partnerships, and path-breaking work in neglected areas. Presenters hail from at least ten states, a dozen universities and think tanks, several national and international defender organizations, and a wide range of defense providers. IDRA is also pleased to have our first co-sponsored panel with our friends at the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence. The schedule for the IDRA panels at ASC is below (click the image to see the full-size schedule). The ASC meeting will take place across November 13-16 at the San Francisco Marriot
A virtual, interdisciplinary community of practitioners, researchers, funders, and policy analysts who care about using data to improve public defense.
