HMCTS Reform Online Event 27 September 2018: Video Remand Hearings

A recording of the live event hosted on 27 September 2018, including presentation slides and questions and answers.

This event provided an overview of the video remand hearings project, which aims to transform the way in which hearings for defendants held in custody could be administered in the future. The service will ultimately enable suitable proceedings to move out of the physical courtroom and into a video space. The event was held for legal professionals and professional court users including the Crown Prosecution Services and the police.
