The National Archives (TNA) will soon be launching their new national database of judgments from the courts of England and Wales. They would like to ensure that this new online service is accessible for everyone. To that end, they are conducting user research to better understand how different groups of users find and access court judgments and tribunal decisions.

You can share your experiences of looking for and accessing court judgments or tribunal decisions by following the link and completing the survey below:  

1. Legal professionals and advisers survey

2. Members of the public survey  (including people going to court or tribunal, or friends or colleagues who are supporting someone else going to court or tribunal)

The responses from this will directly inform how the National Archives design and develop this new online service, which is expected to launch in April. They take less than ten minutes to complete and include the opportunity to volunteer for further user research such as testing the latest version of the service.

These surveys are open to anyone who’d like to share their experiences of looking for and accessing court judgments or tribunal decisions. Please circulate with anyone who may be interested. The surveys run until the end of March so please respond before the 31 March.
