Now available: webinar on courts and COVID-19
How have courts in Europe responded to the COVID-19 crisis? Four members of the MARQUES Dispute Resolution Team discuss that question and compare experiences in a specially recorded webinar.
The webinar can be watched in the MARQUES Virtual Library, along with other online material available from MARQUES.
The speakers in this webinar (pictured, right) are:
- Jeremy Blum, Bristows, UK
- Björn Bahlmann, Boehmert & Boehmert, Germany
- Thomas Legler, Pestalozzi Sttorneys at Law Ltd, Switzerland
- Alberto Camusso, Studio Legal Jacobacci & Associati, Italy
Each speaker discusses the challenges facing courts in their jurisdiction, and how the courts have adapted.
Topics covered include: the need to postpone hearings due to the lockdown; the impact on litigation strategy and settlement; the use of videoconferencing, its benefits and pitfalls; the approach taken by individual judges; how rules on what is and is not allowed differ between jurisdictions; and what the long-term impact of these changes is likely to be.
The speakers also draw on their own experiences of litigating since the pandemic, including their use of videoconferencing tools.
The recording lasts for about an hour and can be accessed directly here.
