The LAA strongly recommends that you continue using the CCMS to build up your experience at using the system. It also welcomes your continued feedback while it further improves the system. Please remember that it will be mandatory in 2016.
Can I put off starting to use the CCMS?
If you are a new user, it is very important that you start using the system. You will need time to train staff, get used to using the CCMS and adapt your business practices.
How are likely are further delays?
The LAA has made a strong commitment to online working for both civil and criminal legal aid and does not anticipate further delays.
