The 15th Annual Martin Tansey Memorial Lecture, “Balancing the need for Due Process, Fair Trials and Systemic Efficacy: The Benefits & Challenges of Technological Improvements and Greater Efficiencies for the Criminal Justice System”, was held online on Thursday, 14th April, 2022.  This lecture was presented by Bruno Min, Legal Director (UK & International), Fair Trials.


Fair Trials:

Fair Trials is the global criminal justice watchdog, campaigning for fairness, equality and justice.  Its team of independent experts exposes threats to justice through original research and identifies practical changes to fix them.  Fair Trials campaigns to change policies, support strategic litigation, reform policy and develop international standards and best practice.  This is done by supporting local movements for reform and building partnerships with lawyers, activists, academics and other NGOs. 

Fair Trial’s mission is global but it is currently focused on campaigning for fair, equal and just criminal legal systems in Europe, Latin America, the UK and the US. It is the only international NGO that campaigns exclusively for the right to a fair trial, which gives it a comparative perspective on the causes of injustice and how to tackle them. 

Fair Trials works with many partners and networks, to support and build wider movements for reform.  These partners include local and international NGOs, lawyers and other criminal justice professionals, and academics.

Fair Trials is an independent, non-profit organisation with no party-political affiliations.  It is funded by a combination of charitable grants and donations. Fair Trials is governed by a board of volunteer Trustees, responsible for the charity’s strategic direction and financial management.
