Government launches consultation on open justice


The call for evidence covers access to data and transparency

The Ministry of Justice launched a call for evidence on open justice on 11 May, which encourages interested stakeholders to share their thoughts on topics such as open justice, access to data and the transparency of court and tribunal services. More specifically, the government is keen to hear the views of interested parties on how the government can uphold and strengthen open justice in the modern age. The evidence will be used to help in the development of new guidance, inform open justice policy, and enhance current and future service development. The consultation runs until 7 September.
