A2J and Navigating the Maze of the Law

Xandra Kramer and Christoph Engel (ESL; Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods) presented their ideas for a vignette study on how laypeople navigate the maze of the law at Erasmus School of Law on 16 November 2017. The study aims to  investigate the relevance of legal uncertainty for the decision of laypersons to rely on the legal system as a means for seeking redress.
