Transforming Scotland’s Justice System

Transforming Scotland's Justice System

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused extensive disruption within Scotland’s justice system. Despite restrictions easing at the end of summer 2021, the adverse effects are likely to be felt for years to come – from victims and community justice services to prisons and courts, where the backlog of solemn cases is not expected to be cleared until 2025. However, the past two years have also demonstrated how resilient and responsive the system can be with the adoption of new working methods across the board.

With the Scottish Government expected to publish a new community justice strategy in 2022, and work underway to develop a broader criminal justice strategy, now is the time to think about what we truly want our justice system to look like and how we can transform it for the better.

This event will be the ideal opportunity to have these discussions, bringing together stakeholders from across the public and third sectors and those with lived experience.
