UK online court platform project and awesome community legal services? In the initial stage of implementation, The Courts Online will be used for less complicated court cases. Family courts and county courts will be considered on this phase and will identify any further development points before going to the next Implementation stage. According to the plan laid out by The Community Law Project UK Ltd, grant funding, equity crowdfunding, institutional investments and owner funds will fulfil the capital requirement for the platform’s development. Management of the Community Law Project UK Ltd. is willing to register two separate companies for the two platforms for better control and expansion in the future. The Courts Online claims to be a fully integrated, dedicated online court platform allowing the Judiciary to deal with cases online. The venue is a highly secure, interactive, and much needed integrated system that will be licensable to selected members to cut costs and ensure a smooth process of court proceedings.
Partner spotlight: Lawyers Without Borders (LWOB) is an international charitable organisation which aims to protect human rights and promote the rule of law. The organisation is made up of lawyers from around the world who provide pro bono services to access to justice and human rights initiatives.

Legal advice of the day: Never be embarrassed to tell your doctors about all of your complaints. The value of your claim is due in large measure to the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment. The doctor can only treat what he observes of what you tell him. The doctor’s records will only be as complete as information that he receives. Keep track of all prescriptions and medicines taken, preferably saving all bottles or containers of medicine. Provide your attorney with receipts for all medications, both over the counter and prescription medications as well as any other items purchased such as crutches, canes, neck braces, splints and bandages.
If your case was dealt with in the magistrates’ court and you do not agree with the outcome, you may have a case to appeal the decision. This can be done in a variety of ways. If you have been sentenced and think the sentence is too harsh, you may be able to challenge this sentence in the Crown Court. Likewise, if you had a trial and were convicted in the magistrates’ court, you may have a case to challenge your conviction either with an appeal in the Crown Court (which is essentially a retrial) or in the High Court (where the legal process in the magistrates’ court is challenged). Legal Aid is often available to cover our fees in these cases. There are strict time limits in place for appeals so taking advice as soon as possible is essential.
The issues have been excruciatingly increased due to the global pandemic, which has severely impacted the most vulnerable even more so. The negative ramifications have affected the legal industry, particularly law firms. This has in turn impacted the futures of many young legal professionals seeking work. Many internships have been cancelled or postponed, leaving many in the field out of work, particularly recent graduates. Many law firms on top of the legal aid cuts and the results of the pandemic, do not have the capacity or resources to take on the ever-growing number of cases that these low-income people want to bring forth. We sought a solution to solve all these issues at once. See additional info on https://communitylawproject.com/.
