Welcome to techUK's Digital Justice Week 2022

Each day throughout the week we shared news, views and insights from members, stakeholders and academics who all contribute to driving digital transformation across the Criminal Justice System. We had five themes for five days!

Coinciding with the Ministry of Justice’s (MoJ’s) Innovation Month, techUK ran for the second year, its #DigitalJusticeWeek2022, occurring between Monday 14 November – Friday 18 November 2022.

The vision for the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is to deliver a world-class justice system that works for everyone in society. With the release of the MoJ Digital Strategy 2025, there is a vision for service delivery and the user experience of justice to be simpler, faster and better. (report: Digitising Justice: Putting data at the centre).

Digital Justice Week 2022 covered topics from; the use of data and digital to support prison leavers and probation services, how to drive interoperability and the importance of building a culture where tech and innovation can flourish to, what it means to move towards a better connected justice system and, what are some of the new technologies shaping the justice system of tomorrow.
