I took part in the first of four open justice themed panel discussions last week (‘Law, Justice and the Spaces in Between’). This first webinar asked : “Does being watched change how justice is done?” and looked at the role and function of observers in trials, inquests, family courts and tribunals. It was a really interesting discussion, ranging across not only family courts but inquests and other fora. It brought together journalists, participants, lawyers, bloggers and tweeters – and I hope was interesting to the 150 odd people who attended.
Part 2 is next week.
If you would like to watch a recording of the webinar you can watch here.
Details of the rest of the series are in my blog post here.
