Open Justice Charter launched

Today has seen the launch of the Open Justice Charter, a set of transparency demands that would increase accountability in England and Wales' criminal justice system and make it easier to correct miscarriages of justice.

The Charter was developed by the Centre in conjunction with Marika Henneberg at the University of Portsmouth, Dr Dennis Eady at the University of Cardiff School of Law, and Louise Shorter at Inside Justice and others.

The Charter was published in the second issue of the Justice Gap's Proof magazine. You can order a copy here.

An article on the Justice Gap website announcing the launch of the Charter, which includes a Q & A with Emily Bolton, the Centre's Legal Director, can be read here.
