There has been a delay to the go-live date for the launch of CourtSA in the Criminal and Care and Protection Jurisdictions. The go-live date which was scheduled for 11 July 2022 will be delayed for approximately 6-8 weeks. The delay is due to a critical issue that has arisen with the data interchanges with other justice agencies.

Data interchanges exchange essential information between justice agencies. Community safety depends on court orders being conveyed to justice agencies quickly and accurately. This is particularly important for orders protecting vulnerable people, such as Intervention Orders. A new go-live date will be advised as soon as possible and the CourtSA Information Sessions that have been advertised will be rescheduled.

How you can prepare

  1. Check and update your contact details with the Law Society of South Australia.
  2. If you already have a CourtSA account, you don’t need a new one for the launch of Criminal and Care and Protection. You can use your existing account.
  3. If you work for a firm or organisation, you don’t need to create an account. Someone in your organisation will create the account and invite you to join. If you don’t have an account and are a sole practitioner you can create an account.

Upgrade to CourtSA Accounts

The CAA has taken on the feedback of the legal profession in relation to assigning a case to a user. When CourtSA launches for Criminal and Care and Protection the information barriers which existed in CourtSA law firm accounts will be removed allowing all users in a firm to see all the cases in the firm. Users will be able to see:

  • ‘My Existing Cases’ which will have all the cases that they have been granted access to or initiated.
  • ‘My Organisation Cases’ which will have all the firm or organisation cases.

The ‘Assign a case to a user’ functionality will be removed from law firm accounts. It is up to the user to act properly and not access cases they don’t have a right to see.
