Second SIFoCC COVID-19 memorandum

We are delighted to share with you the Second SIFoCC COVID-19 memorandum. 

On 29 May 2020 we published a First Memorandum on COVID-19. With the benefit of contributions from across the global membership of SIFoCC, the Memorandum offered a particular focus on the use being made of technology to address issues facing jurisdictions in light of the pandemic. Noting that emerging technologies can be successfully used to enable a significant part of the court system deliver fair and open justice while the pandemic continues, the First Memorandum offered principles for that delivery, and underlined the value of sharing early experience.

The aim of this Second Memorandum on COVID is to focus beyond the pandemic, to arrangements using technology that we might keep for the future because they improve justice. Like the First Memorandum, it has the benefit of contributions from across the global membership of SIFoCC.

We are grateful to the SIFoCC membership for the contributions that made this publication possible.
