Report of the Working Group on Efficiency Measures in the Criminal Justice System - Circuit and District Courts

The Working Group on Efficiency Measures in the Criminal Justice System - Circuit and District Courts - was established in November 2011 at the request of the Chief Justice, the Hon. Mrs Justice Susan Denham, and the Minister for Justice and Equality, Mr Alan Shatter TD.

The remit of the Group was to identify and report on how greater efficiencies and cost reduction measures could be achieved in the operations of the Circuit and District Courts, with particular emphasis on how the agencies in the sector interact with the courts and with each other.

The group submitted its report to the Chief Justice and the Minister for Justice and Equality on 30 November 2012.
