What is a Court Bundle?

First things first, what is a court bundle?

Before we jump into what a court bundle is, let’s define a bundle. According to, a bundle is “a group of things fastened together for convenient handling“.

But what is a court bundle? Although we have found no formal definition for a court bundle specifically, it is similar to trial bundles (see definition here) and as such can be defined as:

A court bundle contains copies of all documents (evidence, statements, forms, expert reports etc.) that are relevant to a court case. With all information in one place, it is easy to refer to in court. Court bundles are typically stored in a leaver arch file(s) or used electronically.

Are you Court Compliant?

One of the most important things to consider when preparing a court bundle, is to ensure that it is court compliant and adheres to the court rules on court bundle preparation.

For example, for more information on the Practice Directions and Family Procedure Rules head over to the Justice on Gov.UK website to read the Practice Directions 27A - Family Proceedings: Court Bundles in full. It covers everything from who is responsible for preparing the bundle; the contents of the bundle; format of the bundle; timetable for preparing the bundle; to lodging the bundle - and much more.

Bundledocs is fully compliant and offers everything needed to generate a court bundle. Next, let’s take a look at how we can create a court bundle using Bundledocs…

  • No extra work. Bundles created using systems like Bundledocs will automatically produce your bundle in electronic format. Once complete you can easily download in PDF format, save, send and even print.

  • Power of electronic bundles. Even if you are required to print your final bundle, having an electronic copy available will always come in handy.

complete compliance

One of our users Armstrong Family Law recently wrote an article about investing in Bundledocs bundle creation software to help with their move towards a “paperlite” (not paperless) office. In the article he mentioned how lawyers are notorious for having large piles of paper files in their office that are both a combination of current case files and files where cases have concluded. But how can producing electronic court bundles help with this?

  • Instantly Archive Electronic Bundles. Solicitors have to keep files for at least 6 years in order to comply with the requirements of the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct. As such having the ability to save electronic records is great for those that want to reduce paper storage whilst still remaining compliant. Paperlite office here you come!

  • Works with your system. Bundledocs makes it even easier to archive electronic court bundles with our range of integration partners, including: iManage, NetDocuments, Tikit TFB Partner for Windows, Dropbox and many more. Better still we have an Open API which makes integrating with third parties easy.


  • Reduce unnecessary printing costs. Using tools like Bundledocs you no longer need to print bundles unnecessarily. Produce electronically, collaboratively work with others, electronically share with anyone that needs a copy and only print where you need to.

  • Work with anyone. Do you need to work with colleagues in different offices? Or share bundles with clients? Or even collaborate with the other side? There are a range of features available to make document production simple - and will save you time and money too.

  • Changes are instant. Build your bundle up over time, make changes as you go and save all the last minute stress. Make a change? Your page numbering is instantly updated with a single click.
