Most of the prior studies measuring the impact of providing counsel in civil cases have compared those who receive counsel to those who do not. However, few studies have compared full representation to limited (unbundled) assistance or limited assistance to no assistance. This article compares the results of a housing study conducted by the Boston Bar Association Task Force on Civil Right to Counsel with a housing study conducted in California, both of which looked at full representation and limited assistance.
