Abstract [en]

The Social contract is founded upon the citizens that willingly give up parts of their freedom and resources in exchange for the right to exercise control of government as well as expecting something in return from the government. This something, could for example be justice and equality. In Sweden you normally have a right to subsidized council during your hearing in court. This is not always the case however for people whom are trying their case in Förvaltningsrätten. This essay aims to prove the theory in Access to justice as presented by Wejedal, S., that without council the risk of losing is significantly higher. This is tested by using a quantitative regression method -a probit where the presence of council contributes to the probability to win. It’s tested with 287 cases from the Gothenburg’s Förvaltningsrätt using data from 2017 including the whole year worth of cases of trials within Lagen om stöd och service till visa funktionshindrade (LSS), tried in this particular court. The analysis show that the chance of winning is 18 percent higher for the group that tried their LSS case, if they had council during the hearing. This fact is also discussed within the framework of street-level bureaucracy, since the right to council is decided by a Street-level bureaucrat, the judge and that the decision might affect the citizen’s perceptions of current public policy and governance based on this decision.
