Criminal Justice Resources from QS Jordans

Responding to the Lord Chancellor

We robustly oppose :

 

  • PCT
  • Removal of Client Choice
  • The current Scale of Cuts 
  • Geographical limitations on contracts
  • Restrictions on Judicial Review
  • Changes to Prison Law Funding 
  • Increased powers to restrict appointment of two counsel 
  • Changes to Civil Legal Aid

 

All the changes proposed will bring a disastrous outcome to our Justice System from which we will never recover .

We would engage with the Government in a full consultation to deal with reform of all agencies in the Criminal Justice System including the Police , Court System , Probation Service , Interpreter Services and the Judiciary .

Only such a full review can help us achieve a modern justice system which protects the vulnerable , secures justice for victims and limits the dangers of wrongful convictions .

As part of the QualitySolicitors Network we have made a strong commitment to modern ways of working and change . We are not afraid of change but we are afraid of the destruction of our Justice system by  ill thought out proposals .
