 Subject: The tick and star system

 Dear All

 Please can I encourage you all to adopt a system devised by                and his team at Isleworth when we were LAUs?

 This is a system of putting a tick or  a star * on the right hand corner of your brief backsheet after completion of the PCMH when the case has been set down for trial.

 The tick is an indication that this case should be briefed out to the external bar and the star is an indication that the case should be briefed to a Crown Advocate.
