Chief Justices outline how jurisdictions have responded to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Chief Justices from around the Commonwealth have outlined the responses of jurisdictions to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The online event replaced the Commonwealth Magistrates and Judges Association event and Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, stated: ‘One of the fascinating insights was that whether, in advanced economies or those developing, a rapid enhancement of the use of technology had been the only way to ensure that the wheels of justice continued to turn; and as judges, practitioners and other court users have become familiar with its use initial doubts are being dispelled’.
