Research at HMCTS
HMCTS is transforming the way in which justice is delivered. Through their reform programme they're modernising and upgrading our justice system so that it works even better for everyone. To properly understand what users want from a modern justice system, they're gathering evidence and carrying out an extensive programme of engagement and research. This article contains a brief overview of the research methods they employ.
HMCTS carries out cross-disciplinary research using qualitative and quantitative methods. Their research includes behavioural research, operational research, social research and user research.
Evaluation of data is vital to assessing whether the proposed changes would be effective. Evaluation activities are conducted independently of HMCTS.
