Ep24: Justice in crisis – why can’t the system cope?

Alexandra Kimmons
01 Sep 2023

In this experimental episode of the Transform Justice podcast, hosts Penelope and Rob ask each other questions about their areas of expertise. Covering broad ground from prison overcrowding to the court backlog and digital justice, our hosts paint a picture of a justice system in crisis.

This episode asks why can’t our justice system cope? And will current proposals help or hinder progress towards a fairer future for justice?
