Methodology


In designing the survey, the Foundation was strongly influenced by the ‘Paths to Justice’, studies conducted by Professor Hazel Genn in the United Kingdom.2 Due to issues of cost and efficiency, it was decided to conduct a telephone survey, supplemented by a small number of face-to-face interviews using the same survey instrument and conducted concurrently with the telephone survey.

Genn, Prof H. (1999) Paths to Justice: What people do and think about going to law, Hart Publishing, Oxford. The Genn study used a face-to face screening survey of the general population (4,125 individuals) of adults designed to estimate the incidence of justiciable events. This was followed up by further face-to-face interviews with 1,134 individuals indentified as having experienced non-trivial problems.
