Courts and tribunals everywhere have been faced with the same problem in the Covid-19 pandemic: how to deliver justice during lock-down. Across the continent, in-person hearings have been giving way to virtual hearings, but this transition has been far from uniform. Following more than six months of different experience and experimentation, we now have much to learn from one another about what different courts and tribunals have been doing, what has worked and what has not. In this session, speakers from Ireland, the UK and France will share their views about what has been working or not working in both the national courts and international arbitration proceedings, what we have gained from virtual hearings and what we are at risk of losing if there is a long-term transition to virtual hearings.
