Test your justice knowledge


egular readers will know I punctuate the year with three Quizzes –  New Year, Easter & August Bank Holiday. So here is your Easter 2023 edition. It’s a simple multiple choice test about anything and everything to do with the criminal justice system. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are when you test your knowledge of the CJS.
