#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)  EWHIS 845 (Ch), Municipio de Mariana v BHP Group plc  EWHC 928 (TCC), and A Local Authority v Mother and Father and SX  EWHC 1086 (Fam).
