    • Abstract:
      During the past several decades there has been an increase in research exploring the subjective evaluations of those people who deal with the legal system. Those public evaluations are understood through interviews with people who have dealt with police officers, judges, and other types of legal authorities. While judges and law yers often conduct informal interviews with jurors or clients after their experiences with the legal system (see, for example, Woolf, 1996), this analysis draws upon the more systematic research con ducted by social scientists for information about people's feelings about their experiences in court or with the police and to explore the role of those judgments in shaping people's reactions to their exper iences with the legal system. Interviews with the public suggest that the American justice sys tem is currently suffering from a crisis of public confidence. One source of this public discontent is with dissatisfaction developing out of people's personal experiences with the courts and the law. This article reviews what is known about the sources of public dissatisfac tion (i.e., What does the public want from the courts?) and suggests some ways that such dissatisfaction can be mitigated. While America is not unique in having public dissatisfaction with the justice system, most of the research reviewed focuses upon the American experience. However, that research which has been conducted in other countries suggests that the psychology of the litigant experience is similar across cultures.
