Online event: Use of remote hearings during the coronavirus outbreak

Join us to find out more about how we have expanded the use of technology to hold more video and audio hearings across all jurisdictions during the coronavirus outbreak to maintain justice. It will provide details of our future plans for the new technology. The panel will show a demonstration of how it works and offer an opportunity for you to ask any questions.

Planned speakers include:

Rosie Rand, Service Owner, Future Hearings Programme, HMCTS

Tim Britten, Deputy Director for Portfolio Delivery, HMCTS

Michelle Filby, Deputy Director, Crime Programme, HMCTS

Mark Fenhalls QC, Leader, South Eastern Circuit

You will have the chance to hear about and discuss:

  • How remote hearings have helped maintain justice during the coronavirus outbreak
  • The guidance and support which is available on use of the audio and video technology
  • The steps we have taken to reduce some of the potential issues facing some court users when engaging with remote hearings
  • What is working well with remote hearings and what could be improved.

This event is aimed at all legal professionals and professional court users who have used remote hearings or are likely to do so in the future. It will last between 40-60 minutes.
