This session will provide an overview of recent studies that leverage state court data to address important public issues. These reports use data from state courts to illustrate debt collection patterns; identify serial eviction practices; profile the civil asset forfeiture process and more. We will discuss the important intersection of court data and access to justice research and explore what we might gain by linking data from different sources. In the second half of the session, we will transition from policy to practice, identifying key differences in the quality and character of court data in six states: Alaska, Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, North Dakota and Oklahoma.
