Chapter 2 describes the design and conduct of the pilot survey and the characteristics of the survey participants.

Chapter 3 provides a broad overview of the legal events identified by the pilot survey, including how many and what type of events were experienced by survey participants. It also discusses whether demographic factors affected the number or type of legal events experienced by participants.

Chapter 4 examines whether survey participants sought outside assistance with their legal events, the reasons for not seeking help and discusses whether the type of event or individual characteristics of participants affected their decision as to whether to seek assistance.

Chapter 5 discusses what happened to the participants who sought assistance, including such issues as where they went, what sort of assistance they wanted, the assistance they received and any problems they experienced in accessing assistance.

Chapter 6 examines whether legal events had been resolved and whether participants were satisfied with the outcomes.

Chapter 7 summarises results by legal event type.
