An update on the programme of work to increase efficiency in the Criminal Justice System
The CJS efficiency programme has made good progress.
Around 48% of LSC contract holders are now able to receive emails securely.
This means that they can communicate with experts and CJS agencies using Secure eMail and receive case files if they provide consent to do so.
The programme continues to encourage defence practitioners to consider the benefits of digital working. For instance, for defendants, digitisation can mean that there is less likelihood of cases being delayed as information can be exchanged more quickly and accurately.
Importantly, the programme and LSC is working closely with representative bodies to resolve the issues raised by the defence community over the last few months and will update you on progress regularly via LSC Update.
