Courts Electronic Filing



Welcome to the CE-File Website. Following the success of electronic issuing and filing through the website in recent months, we have decided to go ahead with a complete switch over to the CE-File system from April 2017 as planned. On 25 April when term-time resumes, it will no longer be possible to issue claims or applications, or to file documents, on paper; all issuing and filings in any of the jurisdictions of the Rolls Building will instead have to be made through the website. Public access terminals and scanners will be placed in the reception area for those litigants with limited access to the necessary IT equipment. Staff will also be available to assist with any technical difficulties that may arise.

We are eager to continue providing the best service and therefore value your feedback on the system, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with the staff at the Rolls Building to share any thoughts/concerns with them on this change. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your feedback.


The Chancellor of the High Court, Mr Justice Blair and Mr Justice Coulson

Updates and Announcements



Please Note: Chancery cases are searchable from 1st October 2014, TCC cases from 10th November 2014. There are earlier TCC and Chancery cases on the system but they are not a complete record of all cases issued during those years. Admiralty & Commercial cases are searchable from 2004, although the information in relation to whether public documents are available only appears on cases issued from the 29th June 2015 onwards.
