Keeping the English Legal System under review

First female Lord Chancellor

leave a comment »

In appointing Lynne Truss MP to be Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor, the new Prime Minister, Theresa May, has made history. Truss is the first woman to hold this office – ever.

What is important, of course, is what policies she will take forward. Although his last weeks in Government were surrounded in controversy, Truss’ predecessor Michael Gove had taken some important initiatives, in particular on prison reform and reform of the civil justice system.

I will note developments as they occur in these blogs.
