Criminal Justice System

JUSTICE has long been concerned with the process of criminal investigation, trial and sentencing in the United Kingdom and it continues to be a priority area for us.

Our work over the last 60 years has spanned the criminal justice system, from police powers to appeal and we continue to review processes to strive for fairness, alternatives to criminalisation, alternatives to custody, and rehabilitation, in particular through restorative justice processes. Our work spans procedural safeguards for defendants, particularly children, as well as services for victims and witnesses.
