The legal system is failing some of the UK’s most vulnerable people. Help us raise funds to make it fit for purpose.
On Sunday 8 October 2017, runners from across the legal profession are taking on the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, in aid of JUSTICE. The money they raise through running the 13.1 mile route will support a new JUSTICE Working Party called ‘What is a trial?’ – in addition to our other work.
Research has found that less than half of people in England and Wales have confidence in the effectiveness of the justice system. We want to help change this.
Legal processes can be confusing and distressing for members of the public who find themselves BLP runnersengaged in the trial process. The What is a trial? will review the participation of court users in their own proceedings, making recommendations to reduce the disconnect between lawyers and lay people, including the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
JUSTICE is a small charity, with limited resources. Without that support of people like you, we simply could not continue our work.
Do you know someone running for JUSTICE? Sponsor them here at our fundraising pages. Please give generously to our runners, as they embark on an intensive four month training programme, ready for race day on 8 October.
