Psychological Impact of Remote Hearings (By Invitation Only)

Highlights

Building on the findings of BRG’s report on the psychological impact of remote hearings, we are bringing together lawyers, expert witnesses, arbitrators and legal psychologists to discuss experiences of remote hearings during the Covid pandemic, unpick the deeper ways that such settings might affect behaviour and even outcomes, and to give their perspective on what the future may bring for face-to-face, virtual and hybrid forums and whether formal guidelines are necessary or likely.

Following an insightful and lively discussion, where audience interaction will be encouraged, the guests will enjoy our Christmas social in BRG’s penthouse entertaining space and terrace with wonderful views of the Thames and the London skyline, festive drinks and hearty canapes.

BY INVITATION ONLY
