Week in Justice 28 May 2017

The week was obviously dominated by the terrible events in Manchester which, combined with the forthcoming election, meant there were very few new developments this week.

The Supreme Court ruled that the lack of probation hostels for women offenders amounted to discrimination.

There were also a number of sad stories relating to the very high number of prisoner suicides at Woodhill although bereaved families were denied a judicial review.

There are some interesting job opportunities - 20 policy jobs at the MoJ and a head of research and evaluation for User Voice.
