Responding to communication needs in the justice system

Comments on The Advocate’s Gateway

Here are some comments we have received from our audiences:

"very high quality material drafted by well-known experts"
His Honour Judge John Phillips, Director, Judicial College

"an extraordinarily valuable resource"
Mr Justice Haddon-Cave

"it should be obligatory for advocates to confirm that they have read the relevant toolkits before the start of any trial involving vulnerable witnesses"
His Honour Judge Pawlak

"being able to ask advocates to look at the appropriate toolkit will be an enormous help"
His Honour Judge Rook QC

"brilliant... an absolutely essential resource"
Richard Atkinson, chair, The Law Society Criminal Law Committee

"succinct and extremely helpful guidance"
The Rt Hon. Lady Justice Hallett DBE, Chairman of the Judicial College

"the CPS has been working closely with the developers of this ground-breaking website which will provide all the relevant guidance, legislation and rules of court in one place for those advocates dealing with vulnerable and intimidated victims and witnesses. This website complements the existing CPS website really well, which provides resources for prosecutors and the public for all areas and stages of the prosecution process." 
Keir Starmer QC, Director of Public Prosecutions
