#SerleShare - “Open for business: conducting trials and assessing witness evidence remotely”

#SerleShare – It is inevitable that for the next few months trials will continue to be conducted remotely, whilst we await completion of a nationwide vaccination programme. In the longer term, it seems likely that litigators and judges, now familiar with conducting litigation via a screen, will embrace opportunities for remote witness evidence with more vigour than we might have done previously.

Constance McDonnell QC discusses the importance of ensuring a fair trial when conducting litigation on screen in her article for SerleShare “Open for business: conducting trials and assessing witness evidence remotely”.

Constance discusses three authorities in particular that make the general principles clear, including Re One Blackfriars Ltd (In Liquidations) [2020] EWHIS 845 (Ch), Municipio de Mariana v BHP Group plc [2020] EWHC 928 (TCC), and A Local Authority v Mother and Father and SX [2020] EWHC 1086 (Fam).
