Welcome to the new home on the web for the Ministry of Justice

GOV.UK is the new place for corporate and policy information from the Ministry of Justice.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

The Ministry of Justice has now moved its content to GOV.UK.

GOV.UK makes it simpler, clearer and faster to find out:

  • how the government works
  • what the government is doing
  • how you can get involved


You can now see information from multiple government departments grouped by topic. For example, you can see how the Ministry of Justice and other departments are working on law and the justice system.

Departments and agencies that have moved to GOV.UK are publishing information about their policies according to the outcome the government is trying to achieve.

For example, the Ministry of Justice contributes to policies on:

For each policy, you can see all the related announcements, consultations and publications in a single list called ‘Latest’. This makes it easy for you to track what is happening on the policies that interest you, for example, ‘Transforming youth custody: putting education at the heart of detention’.

More about Inside Government and GOV.UK

Inside Government is still a work in progress, with only some organisations live. Work will continue as other departments and organisations, many hundreds in total, move their information to GOV.UK. This will happen in batches and will be completed during 2014.

You can find out more about GOV.UK from the Government Digital Service Inside Government tour and introductory video.
