Best Practices for Remote Hearings

As you may know, Kristin Muszynski, on behalf of FOLA, has been working on the e-Task force with the  Advocates’ Society, the Ontario Bar Association, and the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association to review technologies that can help ensure Ontario’s justice system continue to function during and following the coronavirus pandemic.  One of the issues they looked at were e-Hearings. 

Today, they released some helpful documents on best practices to help provide guidance to anyone who is considering preparing for and participating in a remote hearing. Those documents are available below or on FOLA’s website.
