Justice and technology research – Call for applications

How to Apply: 

The Law Foundation of Ontario invites nonprofit organizations to apply for a Justice and technology research grant.

The Foundation wishes to understand how technology is impacting access to justice. Access to justice exists when the public can understand, use, and afford information and services to prevent and resolve their legal disputes and to achieve just outcomes without delay. This granting stream highlights the Foundation’s strategic objective of expanding knowledge: “We continually deepen our knowledge of access to justice, including the contribution of community organizations. We are committed to sharing our knowledge about what is happening and what works.”

The purpose of the Justice and technology research grant is to gain a better understanding of the practical ways in which technology is, or could, potentially change how legal services are provided, and to support access to justice for people with legal needs.

The Foundation understands that there are multiple definitions of “technology” and is open to various research approaches as part of this call.

Eligibility

The Law Foundation of Ontario makes grants to advance access to justice. Grants are made to nonprofit organizations that work to benefit the people of Ontario. The Foundation does not provide funding to individuals or to for-profit ventures.

Measuring impacts and progress — Call for applications

How to Apply: 

About Measuring impacts and progress

The Law Foundation of Ontario invites applications to apply for a Measuring impacts and progress grant.

The purpose of the Measuring impacts and progress granting is to support empirical research that will help improve how the justice system serves the people of Ontario. This granting stream highlights the Foundation’s strategic objective of expanding knowledge: “We continually deepen our knowledge of access to justice, including the contribution of community organizations. We are committed to share our knowledge of what is happening and what works”.

The Foundation is aware that several definitions of empirical research/investigations exist. As a general matter, we are looking for research that is based on observed and measured phenomena and derives knowledge from actual experience rather than from theory or belief. Tied into the idea of “empirical research” is the scientific method of working or testing a hypothesis through observation and experiment. Empirical investigations use quantitative data, which is when you analyze numerical data, or qualitative data, which is when you use non-numerical data such as observations and interviews.

Eligibility

The Law Foundation of Ontario makes grants to advance access to justice. Grants are made to nonprofit organizations that work to benefit the people of Ontario. The Foundation does not provide funding to individuals or to for-profit ventures.
