Covid-19 Message from the PIBA Chair: 24 March 2020 - Update


 

Dear PIBA Member

The Bar Council has published its own updated guidance this morning regarding attendance at Court following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night. 

The guidance can be found here.  Of importance to personal injury practitioners it includes the following:

Civil or Family Courts: you should not attend in person unless the hearing is genuinely urgent and it cannot be done remotely. Such a hearing will be a rare occurrence. 

Please read and familiarise yourself with the guidance.

Stay safe.

Darryl

Darryl Allen QC

Chair of PIBA
