Hi All,

What's happening with bundles now everything's going online? Do self-reppers have the ability to provide the bundles in electronic form or is it some closed shop legal system used?

AFAIK E-bundles have been trialled in some courts but are a long way from being standard.

Do you have a case in a court where these are being used?? I would hope there is provision for a litigant in person to either access the system or produce a paper bundle. Bear in mind that where one party is represented it is the solicitor who puts the bundle together.

Thanks hadenoughnow and apologies for delay in responding. I haven't been given any specific directions yet but the court admin staff said everything was electronic which made their lives much easier. Presumably this means every is printed out then scanned back in again :DI'll come back here to update if I learn anything useful...

Please do update us.

It is always good to get every document stored digitally to make it easier to find relevant documents and assemble a bundle. Good labelling is essential! The point of the bundle is to make it easier for everyone involved (especially the judge) to follow the case and the evidence.

E-bundles will save a lot of paper and printing costs. I suspect that, like with service via e-mail, it will be a long time before they are universally used. Most barristers I know still like a paper version of the bundle to write notes on even if they are also sent the material electronically.

And if the Supreme Court can't get it right, what hope the rest of us :D

With e-filing we have to file electronically and take a bundle to court with us. The Judge just has a folder with a couple of sheets of paper in it and access to a screen.
