Webinar on impact of Covid-19 on access to justice

18 May 2020 (online)

Our second seminar dedicated to an English-speaking audience took place on May 18 at 17:30 CET on “Impact of COVID-19 on the access to justice – a general overview of the situation in various countries throughout the world”.

During the seminar four issues were discussed:
– Pre-trial isolation and the right to defense. Access to a lawyer for detainees, suspects, and accused persons deprived of liberty in investigation and judicial proceedings. Do the justice bodies respect demanded legal standards and do everything work well?
– Victims of domestic violence and their rights in the context of access to justice – existing legal standards and current practice (experiences of lawyers).
– Legal privilege in COVID-19 pandemic times – a value in serious danger?
– Closer or more distant justice? Pros and cons of application of new technologies in access to justice.
