The report, titled "Implementing Video Hearings (Party-to-state): A Process Evaluation", concludes among other things that participants found the remote hearing "to be convenient and easy to understand".
The pilot was conducted by Dr Meredith Rossner, a Cyberjustice Laboratory collaborator and Associate Professor of Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and doctoral candidate in sociology Martha McCurdy, for the HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS). [It] "is the first time that hearings with all parties attending remotely have been trialled in England and Wales. Hearings were conducted as if in a physical courtroom, but they took place over the internet, with each participant logging in from a location of their choice using their own equipment. For the purposes of the pilot, the judge was located in the court room." (Source: LSE)
