Legal aid is being cut. Courts meet in secret. The UK government is working to abolish the Human Rights Act. Our justice system is in crisis.
Justice matters to every one of us. It defines our relationship with the state, rebalances discrepancies in power and protects our rights and civil liberties.
But successive governments have compromised and undermined the UK justice system. Key constitutional principles are being eroded.
Many people aren’t paying attention.
Welcome to openJustice where we inspire debate and mobilise support for positive changes in our justice system.
