Tell the new lord chancellor to prioritise access to justice

2 August 2019

Robert Buckland QC MP was appointed as the new lord chancellor and secretary of state for justice on 24 July.

Access to justice is a fundamental principle that underpins British values and the rule of law.

We have been campaigning to improve access to justice for all, and to address the issues in our criminal justice system.

We’re encouraging people to write to the new lord chancellor to urge him to:

  • back our criminal justice and legal aid deserts campaigns
  • prioritise access to justice
