This webinar will examine the measures and changes to court procedures put in place across Australia in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the move to online hearings and expansion of non-jury trials. It will discuss the rationale and design of these measures, their compatibility with public law norms and values, and look forward to lessons that may be learned about the broader digitisation of court process.
