MEASURING AND REPORTING IMPACT OF PRO BONO INITIATIVES TO STRENGTHEN ACCESS TO JUSTICE Dr Christopher Walsh Senior Research Analyst and Policy Advisor (BABSEA CLE) Associate Prof. of Education & Program Director (Torrens University Australia) Overview Why measure impact? Good key performance indicators.

Sample survey questions. Characteristics of effective surveys. The survey is a critical instrument that clinics can use to measure their impact. Provide a data analysis plan and guidelines. Knowledge beautiful: Visually representing data for for stronger impact. Why measure

impact? Why measure impact? Measuring impact is the recognised way in which you show the value the CLE program is delivering to its beneficiaries and society as a whole. Surveys are an instrument that clinics themselves can use

to measure their impact on future law professionals and advocates for justice. Why it matters? We want to know if the program had an impact and the average size of that impact. Pathway to more funding Good key performance

indicators (KPIs) A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a clinic is achieving key access to justice objectives. Clinics can use KPIs to evaluate their success at reaching targets. Sample CLE program objective: To develop university law clinics that transform law students into

knowledgeable, skilled, and ethical lawyers who: are sensitive to the injustices of the legal system for the poor and otherwise disadvantaged will either engage in public interest law themselves or support lawyers who do this work.

So what is the KPI? The KPI is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a clinic is achieving its stated objectives...or not... Sample survey questions to measure whether the KPIs have been realised Strongly agree

I believe it is important for lawyers to provide pro bono services to poor or disadvantaged clients I will engage in pro bono work in the future You measure something measurable that is directly realated to the

Agree Disagree Strongly disagree The survey is a critical instrument that clinics can use to measure their

impact But only if it is well designed well, easy to use and you REALLY know how to analyse the data collected Himelein, K., Menzies, N., & Woolcock, M. (2010). Surveying justice : a practical guide

Characteristics of effective 1.surveys Collects sufficient demographic information 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Is focused and to the point Extremely clear questions One part questions Only use other or neutral when you can ask for explanation or further details Logical sequencing of questions Provide incentive to increase motivation (share results) Know how you will analyses the results

BEFORE you administer the survey Provide/develop a data analysis plan and guidelines for data analysis (and use it!) to drive your survey design Otherwise you might not collect good data Survey monkey has great free advice! https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/survey-guidelines/ Knowledge beautiful!

Consider visually representing your data for for stronger impact and to make it accessible to diverse audiences Did you have the opportunity to reflect on your experiences and discuss the impact of the law and legal system on clients and attendees with your supervisor and fellow students as part of a planned meeting or class? How helpful was the classroom/training component

in preparing you for the experiential component of the clinic? Did your primary supervisor for the experiential component also teach in the classroom/training component? In your country, as a lawyer can one do volunteer legal work (without pay, pro bono)?

Approximately what portion of the clinics clients or attendees at presentations were low income or otherwise unable to obtain legal assistance/information in your community? My clinic was highly specialized in that we concentrated our work in one area of the law (eg. criminal, family law, employment law) 3 Key points to take away

1. Surveys need extremely clear questions 2. Develop a data analysis plan and guidelines for data analysis (and use it!) to drive your survey design 3. Ask, can I represent my data visually for greater impact? Thank you
