Much has been made in recent years of the view that our justice system is increasingly closed off to the public, despite courts being open for visitors. To counteract this, the Justice Wide Open project as part of the Centre for Law Justice and Journalism at City University, led by Judith Townend, held a conference on that very topic in January 2012. For those of us who were unable to attend, the working papers have now been published using Scribd.
