This data collection examines public attitudes, opinions,
and experiences with respect to lawyers and legal disputes and the
effects that prior experiences have on the future likelihood of using
the law to settle disputes. Variables refer to types and outcomes of
legal disputes, selection of lawyers, gender and age of lawyers, number
of contacts, size of legal firms, the extent of services the lawyers
provided to clients, and the behavior of lawyers. The unit of analysis
is the individual.
