SOLON and The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (Galleries of Justice - Museum of Law)
SOLON seeks to work closely with the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law because of the way that The Galleries of Justice seeks to involve itself in a range of projects in the community utilizing its resources as a museum, but also going out into the community to explore a range of issues and topics, including those relating to citizenship, social inclusion and human rights.

The link is managed by the SOLON-NCCL Steering Group, consisting of the Directors of SOLON, plus Beverley Baker (Curator and Archivist), and Tim Desmond (Chief Executive). The Galleries of Justice has a national remit for its collection and its wider work. Already, the fruits of this partnership are aiding an expansion of information, and access to information, nationally and internationally from the Museum’s archive and library, and an expansion in expertise relating to Citizenship, identity and social exclusion, through the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law at the Museum. The SOLON website will continue to act as a major resource in disseminating material about the activities of the Museum, along with the Galleries of Justice own website, which is linked to the SOLON site.

This innovative enterprise is based on an equitable partnership between two forward-looking projects, both established to further knowledge and access to knowledge about the legal process across a range of disciplines and interests. SOLON regularly joins with the Museum to seek joint funding for research and evaluation of projects and to disseminate by publication, exhibition and other means the fruits of the collaboration. For instance, academics working through SOLON are collaborating with colleagues at the Galleries to improve the accessibility of key archive material at the Museum. This includes the Rainer Foundation Archive, and from May 2005, the national Prisons’ Service archive, formerly based at Rugby.
