The report highlights serious issues with how the civil courts respond to Anti-Social Behaviour.

The Civil Justice Council (CJC) report finds that Anti-Social Behaviour Injunctions (ASBIs) are not working. The Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 transferred much work relating to anti-social behaviour from the criminal courts to the civil courts. Under the 2014 Act Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) were replaced by ASBIs.  One recommendation is to widen the scope and provision of legal aid to ensure that no individual faces the prospect of being sent to jail without access to legal advice.  Dr Anton van Dellen sits as the Bar Council observer on the Civil Justice Council.
