LASPO Survey – University of Essex Law School

So far, we have collected and analysed extensive data, with interesting results. Our current goal is to better interpret our findings by looking at the views of judges and practitioners. To this end, we have compiled a survey. The questions, format, and accompanying documents have been granted approval by the relevant Research Ethics Committee of the University of Essex.

The time required to complete the survey is approximately ten minutes”
