HMCTS Survey on Conducting Video Hearings

JUSTICE considers that any fully remote hearings taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic must be procedurally fair.  We provide responses to questions posed by HMCTS below which draws on our research, including 18 responses so far to a survey of the experiences of the JUSTICE membership, across many first instance and appellate jurisdictions with remote hearings during the Covid-19 pandemic, our Working Party reports which have considered vulnerability and online justice processes, the experiences of Intermediaries for Justice, desk based research and the ongoing testing of a mock virtual jury trial simulation facilitated by JUSTICE.
