The Access to Justice Commission is conducting a state-wide survey of all court users during the month of November. The court user survey is the first phase of a 3-phase racial equity initiative, and we are hoping for a significant response to get as much data as possible from court users in all 93 Nebraska counties. The information is posted on the Judicial Branch website, Judicial Branch Facebook page and Judicial Branch Twitter account. The Clerk Magistrates and staff and District Court Clerks and staff have the survey flyers to display in the courthouses across the state. For individuals preferring a paper survey, instead of an electronic option, paper copies and a confidential drop-box are available in the courthouses.
The NSBA, the NSBA Volunteer Lawyers Project, Legal Aid of Nebraska, University of Nebraska College of Law, Creighton Legal Clinic, the Mediation Centers, CASA, and other non-profits have been notified and are actively promoting the survey and encouraging court users to engage. If you are in a position to disseminate the survey or can encourage others to do so, your assistance is sincerely appreciated. The survey takes less than five minutes and there are no open-ended questions. It was developed by the National Center for State Courts and has been used for several years across the U.S.
