You can now keep up to date with the digital transformation of the justice system by registering for online alerts from the new ‘Inside HMCTS blog’.

This follows on from the government’s commitment to an investment of nearly £1bn in HMCTS to modernise and improve the delivery of justice.

More than £700m is being invested in implementing these changes through the HMCTS Reform Programme.

Another £270m is being spent developing a unified, digital, criminal case management system called the Common Platform. This is being done in partnership with the Crown Prosecution Service and Police.

Civil practitioners are recommended to subscribe to alerts for ‘Civil, Tribunals, Family, Digital Services and Transformation’.

Crime practitioners are recommended to subscribe to alerts for ‘Crime, Digital Services and Transformation’.

Information about the CJS Common Platform, which is the latest programme of work to further digitise the criminal justice system, will be published on the blog.

If you would like to get involved in the development of the Common Platform, you should use the email addresses below.
