Crown Court Digital Case System Guidance

This page contains information and support materials that will help you get the most from the Crown Court Digital Case System.

Applies to England and Wales


You can use the Crown Court Digital Case System to access, prepare and present information on a case.

You will be able to share information with court staff, the judge and the prosecution or defence, and collaborate on documents and the bundle.

You will need a cjsm email account and training to use the system.




The training website mirrors the functionality of the live site, and allows users to practice in a safe environment. You must register for this as it is separate from the live site.

Check the quick reference guides and interactive training videos, for training.

Email: (Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm)
