A webinar presented by the IBA Human Rights Law Committee

This webinar is part of a series of webinars celebrating international Human Rights Day. This webinar will discuss highlighting best practice with regards to increasing access to justice in different jurisdictions. This will be of particular interest to practicing lawyers and judges with a focus on those lawyers providing pro-bono legal services to underserved communities. The aim of the webinar is to enhance the understanding and protection of the rule of law by underscoring the challenges some communities have in accessing courts and similar tribunals. The panel will present potential means (eg, virtual access and AI) for overcoming those challenges, with particular focus on how courts in various jurisdictions have continued to permit access to justice during the pandemic. The panel will explore the hypothesis that, with the move to virtual hearings, courts have the potential to be more flexible and timely in delivering access in a post-pandemic environment.
