JUSTICE will be needed in the future – you can help to secure it
Legacies give us the opportunity to provide for our family and friends and for the causes we care about.
For JUSTICE to continue providing the answers needed to make our legal process efficient, additional resources will always be needed. Leaving a legacy is a huge decision with the potential to be hugely transformative. By leaving a bequest you can ensure that JUSTICE is properly resourced and is able to provide solutions aimed at improving the administration of justice for every single person.
Since 1957, JUSTICE has played a major part in bringing about progressive changes to our legal system, including:
- The Ombudsman system
- The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme
- The Crown Prosecution Service
- Data protection laws
- The Royal Commission on Criminal Justice and the Criminal Cases Review Commission
- Incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights, via the Human Rights Act 1998
- The International Criminal Court (via membership of the International Commission of Jurists)
- Incorporation of safeguards on disclosure in criminal cases
- Fairer sentencing and asylum procedures
- Moves towards a more transparent system for judicial appointments
We want to ensure that generations to come can enjoy an effective and transparent legal system. By leaving a gift in your will, you can safeguard the future of JUSTICE, making sure our work continues to strengthen the justice system long into the future.
