Event Overview

The Modernising Criminal Justice Conference 2019 will include perspectives from central government, departmental bodies and agencies, as well as case studies from those who have front line experience of implementing justice reforms.

Through interactive presentations and panel discussions, the conference will seek to explore the current justice reforms in depth, looking at it through the perspective of ‘joined-up justice’. With the reforms effecting every aspect and stage of the justice system, in contrast to previous years there will be a greater balance of the programme across the entire justice sector.

Industry Research

Prison and judicial reform remain top government priorities, with the cost of reoffending by former prisoners estimated to be up to £15bn a year, and nearly 50% of prisoners go and re-offend within a year.

The government is currently driving large reforms with the objective of delivering a world class justice system, manage the offender population and ensure the best rehabilitation programmes to ensure well equipped to return to society.

From reviving the physical infrastructure of prisons and turning them into safe spaces to addressing the racial disproportionality in the system and digitising courts to drive efficiency in the system, Modernising Criminal Justice will provide timely updates on investment in the sector to help overcome security and safety challenges.
