The Civil Justice Council’s (CJC) 10th National Forum on Access to Justice for those without means took place in central London. For the first time, the Forum was livestreamed.
The event was attended either in person or online by more than 300 delegates, including members of the CJC, judiciary, legal professionals, civil servants, academics, charities, other organisations and members of the public.
Sessions covered accessibility, advice, debt, health, funding and legal aid, litigation, mediation, pre-action behaviour, technology, vulnerability and more.
The aims for the Forum were:
- to look forward, collectively, critically, and purposefully, to identify access to justice needs, opportunities and solutions for the next decade for those without means,
- to build links between delegates and across the sector, engaging individuals by facilitating collaboration, discussion, and challenge, updating each other on new learning and ideas,
- to inform delegates of some of the work of the CJC over the last year and embed recommendations,
- to reflect on the last decade including ten years of the CJC National Forum.
