Dr. Curran discusses her research evaluation of Legal Aid ACT where she was asked to not only measure the quality of the legal services delivered but also to grapple with the vexed measurement of outcomes. In this paper Dr. Curran outlines briefly the approach to the evaluation, the lessons and some of the key findings around how to measure quality, outcomes and effectiveness of legal services delivery. The paper was given in absentia (due to illness that prevented travel to Oxford) by the Chair.
