DCP Sarah Johnston has announced that a pilot return to face-to-face hearings will commence as of 3 October 2022.

In March 2020, face-to-face hearings were stopped in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Hearings have predominantly remained virtual since this time.

Practitioners are invited to attend this course to refresh their skills and technique and to share tips for conducting face-to-face tribunal hearings.

This course is aimed at both experienced practitioners and those who have not yet been able to undertake face-to-face advocacy in the tribunal due to the pandemic.

“Conducting Face-to-Face Tribunal Hearings” will be facilitated by Tam Gill (Mental Health Solicitor and part-time Tribunal Judge) and Dr Laura Janes (Mental Health and Parole Board Solicitor and Visiting Fellow at South Bank University).
