HMCTS Courts and Tribunals modernisation meeting

  • 06/11/2017

All members of the profession are invited to a series of events, being arranged by HMCTS, specifically focused on the legal profession

HMCTS are particularly keen  to hear your views and ideas on the future modernisation of our courts and tribunals.

As you may know they are reforming our justice system.

Susan Acland-Hoo, CEO of HMCTS said “It’s an ambitious £1bn programme that will, by 2022, have made far-reaching changes for those who use the system and for those who work within it. We at HMCTS need to do more to engage and to listen to the wider legal professional community. I want to ensure we are hearing your ideas and proposals directly on a number of key issues, including court listing, better use of tele-phone and video technology and flexible operating hours. Over the next few months, we will be hosting a number of roadshows to give you the opportunity to have your views heard and considered. We are holding the first of these events before the end of the year, and I hope you can attend”.

The event in Manchester, which will last approximately 90 minutes is taking place at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre on Wednesday, 29th November, 2017 between 5.00 and 6.30 pm.

All members of the legal profession wishing to attend and contribute are invited to register their interest HERE
