St Ives Chambers has said that from 5 February all members, staff and pupils are moving to implement completely paperless working practices.
The set said it believes that it is the first chambers in the Midlands to formally adopt a paperless policy and this commits chambers to modern working practices through COVID and beyond.
St Ives Chambers said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the shape of our practices significantly. Whilst it is right to say that legal services have been moving towards paperless operation for some time, there is no denying that the national public health crisis has accelerated the process. The courts have adopted remote working and paperless proceedings at a pace which was previously unimaginable.”
