JUSTICE is an all-party law reform and human rights organisation working to strengthen the justice system – administrative, civil and criminal – in the United Kingdom.
It is a membership organisation, primarily of the legal profession, comprising barristers, solicitors, legal executives, academic lawyers, law students and interested non-lawyers. It works on an all-party basis, seeking to inform debate, frame issues and influence decision-makers from across the political spectrum.
Its vision is of fair, accessible and efficient legal processes, in which the individual’s rights are protected, and which reflect the country’s international reputation for upholding and promoting the rule of law.
It contributes to achieving its vision in three key ways:
-Providing evidence-based analysis and proposing practical solutions to law-makers, judges and relevant public servants.
-Strengthening the law and legal processes by reference to international and comparative best practice, looking across jurisdictions, across types of law and across the legal profession.
-Using the expertise of its membership to strengthen its understanding of the challenges arising in legal practice and of possible solutions, working with them to execute its vision.
