Our £1bn modernisation programme has already started improving the experience of those who use and need our courts and tribunals.

More than 150,000 people used our new online justice services in 2018, taking the total number to just under 300,000 in the past four years.

The public can now apply for uncontested divorce online, apply for probate online, make pleas online for low-level offences (such as traffic offences or evading bus fare), respond to jury summonses, track social security appeals online, and issue and respond to civil money claims. Feedback from those who use our new services has been extremely positive.
