The Ministry of Justice is seeking to modernise the justice system. This document assesses the impact of the plans, which are to:

  • Provide additional assistance to court users who have difficulty using digital services.
  • Allow online guilty pleas and fixed fines for some minor offences.
  • Change the rules on the composition of tribunals to reduce the average number on a panel.
