Justice Week was first held in 2018, and is championed by the Law Society, the Bar Council and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).
Through thought-provoking events and publications, Justice Week aims to improve access to justice by:
- raising the profile of justice and the rule of law
- putting justice and rule of law at the centre of public and political debate
Justice Week 2020
Justice Week 2020 runs from Monday 24 to Friday 28 February.
Its focus is on educating people about their legal rights.
Justice and the rule of law are critical foundations of our society. It’s important the public has a basic understanding of how the law works and the role justice plays in society, politics and business.
People should know:
- what rights they have
- how they can enforce them
- what measures are in place to protect them

Justice Week gives us all an opportunity to discuss how we can help members of the public to better understand the justice system.
