Nagalro acknowledges the escalated industrial action being taken by our legal colleagues within the criminal justice system. We recognise that barristers are dealing with the unprecedented backlog of 58,000 cases within the criminal justice system. Without proper funding the number of barristers will continue to dwindle, and recent gains in recruitment to the bar of women and minorities from diverse and ordinary backgrounds may disappear leaving our legal system damaged. We offer this message of support to them and any other group seeking to protect the status of services to the most vulnerable and voiceless in our justice system as a whole.
