Utah State Court Surveys


Public Trust and Confidence Survey

A Public Trust and Confidence Survey was conducted to determine public perceptions of the Utah State Courts. OpinionWorks surveyed 800 Utah households in July and August, 2012, and asked Utahns questions about the public's perception, familiarity, experience, confidence, expectations, and performance of the state courts. The results were compared to a survey conducted in 2006 to gauge changes in the public perception of the court system.

Access and Fairness Survey

A fair decision under the law is the cornerstone of the Utah courts. Fairness is just a word if the people cannot access their courts. The Judicial Council remains committed to achieving both access and fairness, and measuring progress towards those goals through the opinions of the people who use the courts.

The Access and Fairness Survey is conducted annually in each district courthouse in the state for one full court day. All court "customers" are asked to take the survey as they leave the courthouse. A customer includes attorneys, litigants and their families and friends, witnesses, victims, social service agency staff, jurors, paralegals and other law office staff, and law enforcement. Not included in the customer category are court staff, court security officers and anyone else who works for the court or in the courthouse.
