Justice – Advancing access to justice, human rights and the rule of law
Substantive criminal law
JUSTICE's legal expertise allows us to comment on reforms to the substantive criminal law. We have been much engaged in recent years in reforms to the law of homicide, including the Law Commission's consultation A New Homicide Act for England and Wales?, the Ministry of Justice consultation Murder, Manslaughter and Infanticide and subsequent legislative developments.
We also have a particular interest in public order offences and those affecting freedom of expression.
