Prosecuting in the public interest: Independence without isolation
Prosecuting in the public interest: independence without isolation.
In navigating the unprecedented events of the past six months, the work of the CPS has remained firmly rooted in its mission to deliver fair and independent prosecutions. Independent prosecutions underpin the Rule of Law and protect the public interest. Max Hill QC, Director of Public Prosecutions, will discuss what independence means for the Crown Prosecution Service in an extraordinary 2020 and beyond, and how it intersects with the Service's other values and responsibilities. He will consider what it means to remain independent while also being collaborative, responsive and adaptable in a changing world - and the importance of each of these qualities in maintaining public confidence in the criminal justice system.
