2017 • 1 year, 5 months • Criminal Justice
Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law (Northwestern), established in 1859, is among the top law schools in the country. This award supports a collaborative effort, led by Northwestern and the Center for Criminal Justice Research, Policy and Practice at Loyola University, to engage local justice stakeholders in the development of a comprehensive Cook County Justice Audit. The project design and plans involve a continuing, systematic process for gathering, analyzing and visually mapping basic empirical data on criminal justice system functioning, to be housed in an updateable web-based information system and used to facilitate data-driven policy analysis within and among local criminal justice agencies. This award enables Northwestern and its partners to complete the work of securing stakeholder commitments, acquiring datasets, and developing governance structures necessary for the full launch of the Justice Audit.
