Satisfaction with outcome of legal problems
For each of the 12 327 legal problems reported as finalised, respondents were asked how satisfied they were with the outcome of the problem (see Appendix A1, question A37). Figure 8.1 shows that respondents reported being ‘very satisfied’ with the outcomes of 35.6 per cent of finalised legal problems and ‘somewhat satisfied’ with the outcomes of a further 30.8 per cent of finalised legal problems. Thus, combining these percentages, respondents indicated being satisfied to some extent with the outcomes of approximately two-thirds (66.4%) of finalised legal problems.
