Short Update: HMCTS spends £3.2 million on listing system to cut court delays

FT Admin - June 10, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Access to a lawyer, Remote Justice

HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has announced its initial investment of £3.2 million in listing software, designed to reduce court delays. Court administration is anticipated to be under increased strain going forward given the backlog of cases arising from the COVID-19 lockdown. Scheduling and listing in courts are currently organised using multiple separate systems, while the new software aims to consolidate these processes, saving staff time. The software is to be introduced to a small number of courts over the coming nine months, before being rolled out across the country.
