The WSU Humanities Center invites faculty, students, staff, and the community to our Marilyn Williamson Endowded Fellowship recipient's presentation given by Kirsten Carlson (Professor, Law and Adjunct Professor of Political Science) on the topic of "Indigenizing Outcomes: Imporving Impact Measurement for Indian Legal Services".
Project Description: Dr. Carlson is investigating the gaps in existing measures of outcomes and impacts for legal services delivery in Native communities in the United States. Her work integrates sociolegal theories with Indigenous worldviews to develop an innovative relational theory of legal effectiveness that reflects the values and experiences of Native communities served by legal services programs. She is collaborating with Michigan Indian Legal Services, which provides legal services to Native Americans throughout the state of Michigan, to develop, pilot, and evaluate the use of measures of impacts and outcomes informed by a relational theory of legal effectiveness. The goal is to improve access to justice by providing legal services programs with ways to measure social, institutional, relational, and generational impacts and outcomes.
This event will be take place in McGregor room E, please RSVP.
