How will your partnership with the Guardian work?
We are having ongoing discussion with Guardian Law, the plan is for Guardian journalists, including those not used to covering courts, to go out and report on cases. The Guardian has also agreed to publish some of the best output coming from our writers and pushing the social media aspect south of the border.
Is it a country-wide initiative, or just Scotland based?
Our intention is to make it as wide as possible, at the moment we have started with Scotland as it is where we are based and have contacts, but in the next couple of weeks we plan to roll out the initiative and engage those in England, Wales and Northern Ireland too.
How do you see the project developing after ‘open justice week’?
At the moment we are focusing on making the week itself as successful as possible, we are open to suggestions as to how to take the project forward at the end of the week.
