The Administrative Justice Council held its first meeting at Freshfields LLP in London on Friday 13 July 2018. Forty members from across the administrative justice landscape came together to discuss issues including the courts and tribunal’s reform programme, the ombudsman system, administrative justice in devolved administrations and the Council’s priorities for the year ahead.
The Administrative Justice Council (AJC) is the successor body to the Administrative Justice Forum and provides oversight and advice to administrative justice across the UK. It is chaired by the Right Honourable Sir Ernest Ryder, Senior President of Tribunals, and the Secretariat is provided by JUSTICE, a law reform and human rights organisation. Grounded in grass roots experience and academic research, the AJC will advise ministers, government, and the judiciary on how to improve the administrative justice system and ensure that it is accessible, fair and efficient for users.
