This talk will explore the issue of trust from a legal perspective. First of all, it will present and analyze opinion polls from the World Values Survey and other Surveys such as the Latinobarometro or the European Social Survey on Trust in the Judicial System. Though trust in executives and in parliaments is declining across the globe, there seems to be an increase in trust levels regarding the judicial system. This development will be explored and analyzed and the connection between this emerging evidence and the Theory of Law as Credibility will be made.
