Transformation and modernisation of justice in the UK: for better or for worse ?
Géraldine GADBIN-GEORGE is an Associate Professor at Panthéon-Assas University. She is a solicitor and a former avocat at the Paris bar. At a time when a major reform of French justice is underway (further to two statutes of 23 March 2019), Geraldine will explain that over the last 20 years similar reforms aimed at modernising justice and making it more efficient and speedier have been carried out in the United Kingdom. However, under the cover of improving access to justice – by reforming procedure or digitalizing the judicial process – Geraldine will consider whether the actual objective of those reforms might be to save public money, even to the detriment of the quality of the judicial process.
