The Committee on the Administration of Justice (often known by the acronym CAJ) is an independent human rights organisation with cross community membership in Northern Ireland and beyond. It was established in 1981 and lobbies and campaigns on a broad range of human rights issues. CAJ seeks to secure the highest standards in the administration of justice in Northern Ireland by ensuring that the Government complies with its obligations in international human rights law.

CAJ is a member of the British and Irish Panel of the International Federation of Human Rights, along with Liberty and the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL).

In 1998, CAJ was awarded the Council of Europe's Human Rights Prize.

CAJ's website contains details of all of its publications and consultation submissions since 1981, and information on membership.
