Are the English courts really ready for this? 

The Court released a paper “Justice Matters” and in it they detail their proposals.

In summary, the Court proposes an on-line process for Probate, Divorce  and Civil Litigation cases.

For Crime,  the proposal is a joined up system for the courts, police and prosecutors;

Video link trials:-

  • To enable victims to give evidence where they feel safe!
  • Prisoners may not have to be moved.

Non-payment of transport fares – an online process where users can log on, see evidence, accept convictions and pay a fine online.

How will the Courts do all of this?

  1. They propose to sell existing buildings which are not currently in use;
  2. They will renovate and modernise buildings which are in use;
  3. They will create online hearing centres to handle least serious cases;
  4. They will have a customer support service centre to assist users;
  5. The Courts will open for longer and they will also open at weekends;
  6. They will use video technology for customers to give evidence remotely;
  7. They will enable an online system for financial assistance applications.
