The New Jersey Judiciary has released the results of a survey administered to litigants, lawyers, jurors and other court visitors to measure the public’s perception of how accessible and fair they find the courts.


The survey asked respondents how strongly they agreed with a number of positive statements about the courts. Responses ranged from a high of 91 percent of respondents agreeing that they felt safe in the courthouse, to a low of 70 percent of respondents agreeing that the court’s website was useful. Other statements respondents agreed with most strongly included that the courthouse and their courtroom were easy to find, and that court staff and court security officers treated them with courtesy and respect.
