Description

‘What Would A Truly Citizen-Centred Justice System Look Like?’

Join us to hear Professor Dame Hazel Genn DBE QC (Hon), a leading authority on access to justice, deliver the 2nd Sir Zelman Cowen Centre Oration at 5.30pm on Wednesday 1 November 2017.

Dame Hazel’s work focuses on everyday people's experiences of legal problems and examines how the justice system can be made more responsive to their needs. Her world-renowned study Paths to Justice has been replicated in 27 jurisdictions around the globe and has had a major influence on policy-makers seeking to develop citizen-centred approaches to legal services, justice policy, and the work of courts and tribunals. Read more about Dame Hazel's contribution to the law and public policy here.

Citizen-centred justice is of critical relevance to:

  • judicial officers;

  • court and tribunal staff;

  • policy makers;

  • academic researchers and students of law and public policy;

  • legal and dispute resolution practitioners.
