Justice Week 2020 aims to improve access to justice by boosting the profile of justice and the rule of law. John attended the Parliamentary drop-in to find out more.
This year the week is focusing on promoting greater awareness to young people to help them understand:
- the importance of the justice system,

- to see justice and the rule of law as fundamental to out lives and freedoms.
