**Our Magistrates' Court Unit has moved**

All CPS London Magistrates’ Court Unit work is now based at:

Rose Court,
2 Southwark Bridge,
London, SE1 9HS
DX 154263 Southwark 12

Please see specific building/floor locations in the table on the left of this page.

Please note: Email addresses and the main telephone number will remain the same, however individual telephone numbers are changing after they move to Rose Court. If you need to contact a member of staff on the Magistrates' Court Unit please phone our main number - 020 3357 7000 - and select the relevant unit.

Quick guide on which team to contact:

All cases (except Youth Court cases) start in the magistrates' courts. Where magistrates send a case to the Crown Court because it is triable only on indictment (generally more serious offences) or where they adjourn a case for committal papers to be prepared and served, the case from that point will be dealt with by the relevant Crown Court team.

Cases that remain in the magistrates' court will be dealt with by the relevant magistrates' court team, including youths charged with adults.

Cases being heard in youth courts will be dealt with by the Youth Court Team, unless the magistrates decline jurisdiction (in the case of grave crimes) in which case it will be dealt with by the relevant Crown Court team, which will handle, prepare and serve the case.

In relation to cases being dealt with in the magistrates' courts or youth courts, British Transport Police (BTP) cases will be prepared and handled by the CPS team which ordinarily prosecutes cases in the court in which the case will be appearing.

In relation to cases being dealt with in the Crown Court, BTP cases may be dealt with by either Crown Court team depending on the borough in which the case first appeared (see chart on left).
