What we are about
- The Justice Gap is an online magazine about the law and justice aimed at the public.
- We are about the law as it relates to you.
- We are about journalism and shining a light on those parts of the justice system that don’t often see the light of day in the mainstream media.
- We are interested in the broad sweep of the law: human rights, the criminal justice system, family, employment through to consumer issues. In other words, all aspects of the law that relate to you in your day-to-day life.*
What we are not about
- We are not lawyers. The site is run by journalists.
- We run articles by lawyers and professionals involved with the law; and we run articles by people who are neither but who have views on the effectiveness or otherwise of our legal system.
- We don’t engage in correspondence about individual cases.
- Any contributions will be run at the editor’s discretion. All comments are moderated.
- We don’t claim to have either the right skills or resources to assist people with their individual legal actions. Sorry.
- Any information about the law on our site is not a substitute for legal advice (as is explained in our terms and conditions) but it is to illuminate legal issues.
