HMCTS videos re online hearings
In case helpful ... a series of new HMCTS videos to help prepare and support participants in online hearings ...
New page too on the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies’ website:
There is currently very little online support to prepare members of the public for appearing in a hearing from their own home or to guide them around these new virtual spaces. This has led to concerns about access to justice and due process, with particular concerns being raised about the ability of the disadvantaged and digitally disadvantaged to interact with the legal system in this way.
Working in partnership with HM Courts and Tribunal Service this project draws on extensive consultation with the public, court and tribunal staff, interest groups, practitioners and policy makers to produce a produce a series of video guides for lay users for use in tribunals and family courts.
