The Administrative Justice Council has launched a new website today. This will be a be a vehicle for publicising the work of the Council, read the latest news and get to know the members of the different panels.
The Administrative Justice Council (AJC) is the successor body to the Administrative Justice Forum which was abolished in April 2017.
The Council is the only body with oversight of the whole of the administrative justice system in the UK, advising government, including the devolved governments, and the judiciary on the development of that system. The AJC will assume and build upon the role of the Administrative Justice Forum. It will have the following aims:
- To keep the operation of the administrative justice system under review
- To consider how to make the administrative justice system more accessible, fair and efficient;
- To advise the Lord Chancellor, other relevant ministers and the judiciary on the development of the administrative justice system;
- To share learning and areas of good practice across the UK;
- To provide a forum for the exchange of information between Government, the judiciary, and those working with users of the administrative justice system;
- To identify areas of the administrative justice system that would benefit from research;
- To make proposals for reform
