Campaigning to improve Administrative Justice in Scotland
Accountability Scotland was set up to improve the administrative justice system in Scotland. This is the overall system by which decisions of an administrative or executive nature are made in relation to particular persons, including: procedures for making such decisions; law under which such decisions are made; and systems for resolving disputes and airing grievances in relation to such decisions*.
