Conference Civil Courts Coping with Covid-19

15 April 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic has propelled unprecedented transformations to civil proceedings and the landscape in which they operate. A leap in digitisation – courts pivoting from paper-based procedure and face-to-face hearings to paperless proceedings and remote hearings – has occurred in jurisdictions across the globe. This transition raises several questions that will be discussed by a panel of five distinguished experts (from various continents) in the field of civil litigation representing five different legal systems.

23 April, 13.00-15.00.

More information on this online Conference (including list of speakers and registration form) can be found here.

This conference builds upon the book Civil Courts Coping with Covid-19 (eds. Bart Krans and Anna Nylund), which contains chapters on 23 countries across the globe. Since 8 April 2021 the book is available online (open access). A printed book will be available soon.
