Ministry of Justice moves to GOV.UK

PUBLISHED March 28, 2013

Ministry of Justice corporate content will move to the new single website for government GOV.UK in April 2013.

In October 2012 GOV.UK brought together government information and guidance from Directgov and Business Link into one place - this included content from the Ministry of Justice. 
The next phase of GOV.UK is to replace all UK central government department websites, moving corporate content onto the Inside Government section of GOV.UK.

What this means for and our website visitors

From April, all MOJ corporate content e.g. news, publications, statistics, and research and analysis will no longer be published on and will instead be published on GOV.UK.

As the justice website features content from a number of justice organisations including HM Courts & Tribunals Service, the National Offender Management Service, and the Youth Justice Board, it will remain open until this content is moved to GOV.UK over the next year.
If you have a page on our current website bookmarked, don't worry. Links will continue to work. Our current web pages will either re-direct to the new pages on GOV.UK that contain the same information, or link to an archived version of the page on The National Archives Website.

More about GOV.UK

There are a number of additional features on GOV.UK that will allow you to get a better understanding of the work we do.

If you are interested in the workings of government you will be able to see information from multiple government departments grouped by topic. For example, you'll be able to get a comprehensive picture in one place of what the government is doing about crime and policing.

We will be presenting our policies in a way that more clearly presents the outcome the government is trying to achieve, and the actions it is taking.
