Overview

We are modernising our courts and tribunals system to make it more straightforward, accessible and efficient for all. Its an ambitious 1bn programme designed to improve the system for both those who use it and for those working within it.

We recognise the vital role that our stakeholders play in helping us to understand the needs of courts and tribunals users, and to identify opportunities to improve their experience, remove access to justice barriers, and make the most of modern ways of working.

Were planning events to raise awareness and contribute to the progress of different aspects of the reform programme. Events include an international conference on online courts, live online events and showcase opportunities for users to get hands-on with some of our new and developing services.Were creating opportunities to hear your views and feedback, and enable you to ask questions about the progress and ambitions of specific projects.

Upcoming events

We will host a series of face-to-face and online events, in various formats, providing a range of opportunities to get involved. Wherever possible, we will livestream face-to-face events and enable participation online.
