Message from the PIBA Chair: 4 May 2020


 

Survey and CJC review of remote hearings

The Civil Justice Council has just announced a review of the changes necessitated by the Covid-19 lockdown, and in particular the use of remote hearings.

The link is here.

It asks for responses from individuals, so can I please encourage you each to respond.  The deadline is Friday 15th May.  We we also be seeking ways to have PIBA’s collective view heard as part of this review.  It is vital that we all have our say about the current and future arrangements.

Webinars
 
On Wednesday this week at 4pm we have Her Honour Judge Melissa Clarke giving us “A view from the Bench”. Please could you send any questions you would like Her Honour to answer to admin@piba.org.uk

And on Thursday at 4pm we have Jayne Adams QC’s “Quantum Update”, deferred from 22nd April when issues beyond our control with the MS Teams platform prevented it taking place.

Links to join each of these webinars will be emailed directly to you.

Kind regards

Steven Snowden QC
Chair of PIBA
