Following the successful implementation of the Crown Court Digital Case System (DCS), we recognise there remains opportunities to develop and improve the user experience. We are holding a number of workshops in October 2016 specifically for defence practitioners to give us their thoughts on particular elements of DCS.

We are extending the use of DCS into the Court of Appeal and we are particularly keen to refine how multi-hander cases are managed as well as review how notifications can add value to the customer.

All workshops will be held in the Court of Appeal building at the Royal Courts of Justice, The Strand, London.
