MESSAGE FOR CIRCUIT AND DISTRICT JUDGES FROM THE LORD CHIEF JUSTICE, MASTER OF THE ROLLS AND PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY DIVISION
The Lord Chief Justice, Master of the Rolls and President of the Family Division have sent out a message to civil and family judges. This has been made generally available. I provide here highlights of the message, particularly relating to civil practitioners. The message makes the point that remote hearings can be far more tiring for all those involved, including the judge. Listing has to be adjusted accordingly. (The full message is available here).
The message starts with stating that much has been learned about remote working over the past three weeks.
