October 2009: "Dispute resolution: practical assistance on
navigating the cross-border civil justice landscape"
London, 21 October 2009: "Equality in Justice Day"
Equality, Justice, Communities: What do these terms really
mean to you, how do they work together and how can you influence
this agenda to ensure the justice system meets your needs?
Come along and help us discuss these issues at our second
annual Equality in Justice Day.
With staff from the MoJ, other
Government departments and external stakeholders in attendance,
we hope that every person will leave with a better understanding
of how the MoJ is working and engaging with the wider community
across the country and how we can move forward in this way.
There will be organisations
representing the different strands of diversity, with a wealth
of information for you to take advantage of.
The day will consist of a variety of
sessions run by field specialists, with plenty of audience
participation to ensure you are involved in highlighting the
issues that need to be addressed and the steps to take in
addressing them. We are lucky enough to have Carolyn Downs, the
Deputy Permanent Secretary and Board-level champion for equality
and diversity issues, as a speaker. We also have a specialist
panel who will lead a Q&A session, including Mary Shaw (Head of
the MoJ Corporate Equality Division) and Richard Wilkinson,
author of ‘The Spirit Level.’
