The Queen's Speech at the May opening of parliament outlined the government's proposals for criminal justice reform. A report by the the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on the 26 May 2016 found that the criminal justice  system was "bedevilled by long-standing poor performance, including delays and inefficiencies", with a back-log of 51,830 cases awaiting a court hearing as of September last year and an average 134-day wait between cases leaving magistrates' courts and the start of crown court proceedings. 

What problems does the justice system face? What policies should the Left favour on prison reform and general reform of the Justice System? Join the Fabian Law Network to examine the proposed changes to the criminal justice reform on Thursday 2 June 2016, at the Royal College of Surgeons 25-43 Lincoln's Inn Fields. We'll be joined by His Honour Judge John Samuels QC, head of the Criminal Justice Alliance and others.
