Criminal Court Case Defence Preparation – The 36 Group

Leading London barristers’ chambers, The 36 Group, recently deployed Luminance Discovery for in advance of a high-profile and historic murder trial. An investigating team of 20 people, including forensic experts, former police
officers, solicitors and barristers needed to review over 10,000 documents in order to decide the defence argument
and evidence ahead of the murder trial.


With all of the team working remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The 36 Group needed a solution that would
allow them to gain insight into the entire document set from any location. Previously The 36 Group had relied on the Crown Court Digital Case System (CCDCS), an online platform used by instructing counsel in England and Wales, to access, prepare and present information for court proceedings, but in this case the team found the CCDCS unable to provide a centrally-accessible platform offering the necessary remote access to evidence, unused material, correspondence, court orders and other defence materials. Moreover, the CCDS lacked the intuitive and collaborative
tools this complicated case required, since it needed to be accessed by a large defence team with little opportunity for
training or on-boarding.
