A.1 The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) serves the public by providing a framework within which the state promotes and enforces rights and responsibilities, and upholds and protects justice and democracy. The department's work in criminal and civil law, human and democratic rights defines its core rights and responsibilities - the protection the public is entitled to expect from others, and the department's reciprocal obligations. The department is also responsible for providing support where rights and responsibilities are not respected - for example through legal aid, tribunals, and the resolution of disputes through the civil and family courts - and for ensuring that there are consequences for the breaching of rights and responsibilities. This includes sentencing policy, the effective administration of prison and probation service, and the enforcement of court judgments.
