Resources You Need to Evaluate Your Program

Conducting an evaluation of your program or project, whether it involves a new tech innovation or self-help materials, can sometimes seem daunting to lawyers. The Harvard Access to Justice Lab will describe various evaluation methods and will discuss the strengths, weakness and ideal applications of each approach. The webinar will also cover resources available in the community to help programs develop new evaluation tools without reinventing the wheel.
