Providers are being invited with other members of the legal profession to register for a series of roadshow events which start on 27 November 2017.

The idea is for HM Courts & Tribunals Service to collect views and ideas on the £1 billion modernisation programme.

This is due to be completed in 2022 and will affect everyone who uses and works within our courts and tribunals.

  • 29 November, 5pm to 6.30pm – Manchester Civil Justice Centre
  • 11 December, 5.30pm to 7pm – London Royal Courts of Justice

More events will be scheduled later in the year.

How will the events work?

There will be a general introduction to the reform programme and a round-table discussion.

Issues will include:

  • scheduling and listing
  • virtual hearings
  • flexible operating hours
