HMCTS are currently undertaking an evaluation of remote hearings to understand more about the remote hearing practice implemented during the COVID outbreak, and to make recommendations for use of remote hearings in the longer term.
The views of legal representatives are of central importance to understanding how remote hearings are working. This survey is for any legal representative who has taken part in remote court or tribunal hearings since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This applies to hearings where all parties joined remotely (online or by phone) but also to hearings where only some of the parties joined remotely. It asks questions about both your practical experiences and perceptions of remote hearings and should take 10-15 minutes to complete.
We encourage legal professionals to submit their views for consideration. Your views are very important. By sharing your experiences, you can help HMCTS to understand how best to deliver justice during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
