Searle Civil Justice Institute

Initially funded with a generous grant from The Searle Freedom Trust, the Searle Civil Justice Institute is proud to bear the Searle Family name. From 2010 to 2016, the SCJI provided analytically rigorous, balanced, peer reviewed research on the impact of laws and regulations on our nation’s free enterprise system.

These initiatives involved the collection of substantial amounts of data, statistical and econometric analyses, and production of public policy reports, and were subject to a balanced peer review process in accordance with the SCJI research protocol and reviewed by the SCJI Board of Overseers.
