SRL Intake Report 2015-16NSRLP
This Report collates and analyzes data from Intake Forms completed by SRLs from April 2015 to December 2016, a total of 73 respondents.
The data tracks the core demographics – gender, income, education, age etc – of the SRL population. The results are highly consistent with our previous study results, as well as studies conducted in other countries.
Also consistent is the finding that many SRLs begin their case represented by a lawyer, but become self-represented partway through when mounting legal costs become unaffordable.
SRLs tell us their stories in an open format at the end of the survey. This Report also presents themes from those narratives, along with many direct quotes.
