dc.description.abstractThe study of demographic and organizational factors affecting the job satisfaction of court-appointed attorneys was conducted in order to determine which of these factors had the strongest association with attorney job satisfaction. Three composite variables were used to measure satisfaction: job satisfaction, job dissatisfaction and burnout, and meaningfulness of work. Sex, age and length of tenure were not significantly correlated with any composite measure of satisfaction. Participation on the felony or misdemeanor mental health list was significantly correlated with increased job satisfaction. The accessibility, predictability, consistency, equal treatment, and professionalism of judges and their staff had a moderately positive correlation with job satisfaction and a negative correlation with burnout. Therefore, organizational factors had a greater association with satisfaction than age, sex, and tenure. Meaningfulness of work was not significantly correlated with demographic or organizational factors.
