Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)/Participatory Action Research (PAR) Legal Research Pilot Project
Organization: 
UC Berkeley
Director: 
Mary Louise Frampton

The Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)/Participatory Action Research (PAR) Legal Research Pilot Project will establish a pilot program at UC Berkeley and UC Davis Law Schools to support graduate research that embraces democratic principles of collaborative research in California╩╝s San Joaquin and greater Central Valley. Building on over five years of research and partnerships in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV), this project would be a first step towards establishing a program that cultivates long-term partnerships with community associations and San Joaquin Valley nonprofits; training professional students in Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)/Participatory Action Research (PAR) methodologies for legal and policy research; exposing graduate students to the array of ethical issues that underlie CBPR and PAR; and creating a multi-campus effort to support and invest in the SJV.
