The Common Law Court of Human Rights

When an individual feels they have been treated unfairly by a state agency, they currently can only complain via other state agencies. The Common Law Court of Human Rights offers individual the opportunity to submit their complaint of an unfair hearing, tribunal or trial to be considered by a randomly selected jury of their peers, who will then arrive at a common law verdict. The verdict can then be taken to the agency in question to offer a remedy. We require volunteer jurors to form the basis of this service – decide whether there has been a potential or actual breach of Article 6 of the Human Rights Act, and give comments on claims. Volunteers are anonymous from claimants and state agencies by default. We also need local activists to raise awareness of the concept,and to act as local partnership managers and potentially to facilitate real life common law human rights courts in community settings.
