Remember JUSTICE in your will

JUSTICE will be needed in the future – you can help to secure it

Since 1957, JUSTICE has played a major part in many 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.

Leave a legacy of fair and accessible justice for all

 Contact your solicitors and ask them to add a codicil to your existing will or help you draft a new one – they can advise you on the exact wording.
