ISER Director Professor Peter Lynn appointed to Government's Court Reform Evaluation Advisory Panel
ISER Director, Professor Peter Lynn has been appointed by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to the Court Reform Evaluation Advisory Panel.
The panel will advise the Ministry of Justice on all aspects of the evaluation of the HMCTS Reform, an ambitious programme of change that aims to deliver a modern justice system using new technologies and ways of working to create a more effective system for all users of the justice system.
The gov.uk website states:
‘In collaboration with the senior judiciary and the Ministry of Justice, we are investing £1bn to reform our courts and tribunals system.
‘Our systems and processes have not kept pace with the world around us. We know we can make justice less confusing, easier to navigate and better at responding to the needs of the public. We want every user to feel they have been treated swiftly, fairly and with respect.
‘We are building a modern system for administering justice which will benefit everyone who uses it. By designing systems around the public who need and use our services, we can create a more effective system for them and generate efficiencies for the taxpayer.’
