Advocate App Overview
The Advocate Case Management App provides a number of tools to assist Advocates in preparation, case management, and presentation in Magistrates' or Crown Court. From initial Client attendance or telephone interview, the Advocate can record outcome and billing information upon a customisable Attendance Note.
Once a Client folder has been created the Advocate can reference Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Guidelines, Civil or Criminal Procedure Rules, or CPS Legal Guidance linking to any specific or alternative offences or any indexed reference.
Advance Information and Case Bundles can be added into the Client folder providing a single point of reference for all items required for a Client hearing.
The following screencast walks through the creation of a client the additional of client files and association of offences or index data to the client.
The Advocate App uses core Apple iOS5 (or later) data-encryption technology to secure all client information including Police or CPS electronic bundles received separately via CJSM Secure eMail.
Adding Electronic Bundles & related resources
Advance Information or electronic bundles received via CJSM Secure eMail can be easily and securely added into the Advocate App and then associated to a Client folder.
