Access to Justice
Access to justice and the right to a fair hearing are fundamental to the rule of law and any just society which values dignity and fairness. In R (on the application of Unison) v Lord Chancellor, the Supreme Court said;
‘The constitutional right of access to the courts is inherent in the rule of law.…the value to society of the right of access to the courts is not confined to cases in which the courts decide questions of general importance. People ….need to know, on the one hand, that they will be able to enforce their rights if they have to do so, and, on the other hand, that if they (employers) fail to meet their obligations, there is likely to be a remedy against them. It is that knowledge which underpins everyday economic and social relations. That is so, notwithstanding that judicial enforcement of the law is not usually necessary, and notwithstanding that the resolution of disputes by other methods is often desirable’.
