Virtual hearings and mediations are here to stay

The legal sector is adopting new technologies to automate real life judicial experiences, making them more accessible and more efficient.

Using remote video technology with screen-sharing capabilities and the security needed to ensure safe and efficient proceedings, we can help you provide flexible remote access for judicial meetings and hearings.

Are virtual hearings and mediations here to stay?

The ability to connect judges, arbitrators, counsel and witnesses from remote locations via a virtual set-up has allowed a level of flexibility, cost effectiveness and efficiency that likely will make virtual courtrooms grow in popularity. Other benefits brought to light are fewer no-shows at court hearings due to people not having to disrupt their daily routine to appear in virtual court. Videoconferencing is also less intimidating for many, such as people representing themselves for example.

We predict a trend much like hybrid, or blended working in an office environment where parts of the judicial process, or some court cases might be more suited to stay online whilst others will be held in-person. This will allow shorter discussions to happen remotely rather than take up time and space in courthouses. A hybrid hearing can also enable some participants to be present in the courtroom while others join via video. This technology allows you to adapt and improve to provide the best solution possible for every case.

How does it compare?

A virtual courtroom is designed for a faster and more effective court hearing that saves costs and valuable police hours. The technology brings benefits such as translation functions, custom built rooms, and secure access to view confidential documents. Our range of bespoke managed video conferencing and collaboration solutions are best in class and are tailored to each client’s specific requirements, ensuring you see a return on your investment while enjoying increased productivity.
