Posted on behalf of Oxford University:

Background: There is currently very little online support to prepare members of the public for appearing in a hearing from their own homes or to guide them around these new virtual spaces. This has led to concerns about access to justice and due process, with particular concerns being raised about the ability of the disadvantaged and digitally disadvantaged to interact with the legal system in this way.

Result: The main output of this project has been the development of films to help lay users of the justice system access and participate in online hearings. In particular, the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal Film and its BSL version.
