How can we measure the quality of case outcomes across different jurisdictions, types of cases, and for the individuals and organisations involved? Including whether the court or tribunal was the ‘right’ method of resolution.

Background

We want to modernise the procedures and infrastructure of our courts and tribunals, leading an effective, efficient and coordinated justice system across all the civil, criminal and family justice jurisdictions.

Next steps

We can be contacted at the following email address: evidence_partnerships@justice.gov.uk.
