Back to the future

  • End direct cross examination of domestic violence victims by their alleged perpetrators in family courts and extend the use of virtual hearings.
  • Enable online systems for less serious charges, to plead guilty, accept a conviction and pay a fixed fine. This will go alongside digital services allowing businesses to pursue their cases quicky, to recover debt.
  • Modernise the courts, providing a better working environment for judges, allowing more leadership positions in the judiciary on a fixed term, and more flexible deployment of judges to improve career progression.
