Despite the disruption that Covid-19 has caused across the country, it has been vital for legal proceedings to continue. Like many essential services, Communicourt has adapted quickly and moved much of our work online to ensure the court system can continue to function fairly. We have pulled all of our learning together to share in a new report.
Never in recent history has the legal system been forced into such rapid change as now. Since March 2020 we have offered a remote intermediary service, mostly in family courts. Working remotely has been a challenge, but is a challenge which we have embraced. We are using new technologies and innovative working styles, and we have used our experience to advise on what does and doesn’t work well for vulnerable people with communication difficulties.
