Use of Zoom and Asynchronous Hearings at State Courts Trials
Covid-19 has accelerated the pace of our adoption of technologies. Hear from the State Courts about the latest developments on trial, interlocutory applications and pre-trial conferences using Zoom and Asynchronous Hearings; clearing sovereignty issues (for overseas witnesses); swearing in of witnesses; filing/screening of exhibits; how many authorities to include; unauthorised recordings; practical and technical issues; and common mistakes encountered, etc. Learn what preparations and compliance with Practice Directions are required for these remote hearings. A chat with district judges that you would not want to miss!
The first of a two-part series of informal fireside chats by judicial officers and judges will start off with the Judges of the State Courts discussing how the Courts have harnessed technology during this pandemic in trials and hearings. Details of the new initiatives introduced by the Courts this year, such as virtual criminal trials and asynchronous civil hearings, will be shared during this session.
