State of the State Courts Survey Analysis Results

Posted by Matt Schmidt | Dec 07, 2017 | 0 Comments

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) contracted with GBA Strategies to conduct a comprehensive public opinion survey of 1,000 registered voters in order to gauge current levels of public trust and confidence in the state courts.  

Here are some of the most surprising findings: 

  • Nearly 2 to 1, Americans say most judges do not understand the challenges facing those who appear in their courtroom and need to do a better job of being out in the community listening to people.
  • Nearly 3 in 4 agree that delivering access to justice in rural America is a challenge for state courts, and many see online services as the best way to close the distance gap.
  • A strong majority see the court system as too complicated to allow for self-representation, and this is true across all demographic groups. SPOILER ALERT: Millennials aren't going to lead the charge for self-representation.
