In January 2024, the Ministry of Justice launched a Call for Evidence on Local Criminal Justice Boards to better understand the challenges that they face and how they can best be supported. If you are practicing criminal law or supporting local legal practitioners who do, please consider:
- Responding to the Ministry of Justice by 23 February 2024: www.gov.uk/government/consultations/local-criminal-justice-board-call-for-evidence and
- Take part in a Ministry of Justice virtual roundtable via Microsoft Teams on Monday 5th February 2024 between 15:30pm – 17:00pm to provide your views and perspective verbally on the questions within the survey. The agenda for the roundtable is attached. Please RSVP directly to the Ministry of Justice to take part: email@example.com Spaces are limited.
It is important that the views of the whole of the local criminal justice system and associated sectors are reflected in this Call for Evidence and the Ministry of Justice have said that they are keen to hear fromdefence representatives and the legal community – please encourage colleagues and members to respond.
