In need of legal assistance?

(full text only available in Dutch)


The aim of this study is to provide insight into the (non-)use of legal assistance. The question of the AR has been broadened in a number of respects. Firstly, the use of legal assistance among all income groups has been mapped and is not limited to the use by those who meet the criteria of the Legal Aid Act. From a policy point of view, the use of legal assistance of those who are not entitled to legal aid is also relevant. Moreover, this group is a useful frame of reference for the findings with respect to those entitled to subsidized legal aid.
Secondly, others than (subsidized) advocates provide legal assistance too, therefore this study paid attention to various forms of legal assistance. Thirdly, the use of judicial proceedings was included in this study
