CJSM users should not use Secure eMail outside the UK.
Providers and advocates should not attempt to use the Criminal Justice Secure eMail (CJSM) system when working overseas.
This condition is stated in the terms and conditions for using CJSM – see link below.
Providers or chambers should ensure all users understand the security responsibility of having a CJSM account as it is their responsibility to follow the terms and conditions.
It has become an issue since a prosecution barrister was found to be trying to enter the CJSM system from outside the UK.
The barrister was trying to reset his account password – apparently unaware he was breaking the terms and conditions of the account by accessing the system from abroad.
He had been working in this way for almost 12 months because he was living overseas and based in UK chambers – only returning to the UK to conduct trials.
