The following information provides outline guidance on Chambers’ current position with respect to COVID-19. If you have a question that is not covered below please do not hesitate to contact our clerks using the contact information below.
Chambers absolute priority must be to follow government guidance to safeguard the health and wellbeing of clients, staff, Members and the wider community. However, at the same time we are doing all we can to maintain services to clients as far as possible. All our telephone and IT systems have been cloud-based since September 2019 which means that there is effectively no difference in systems availability at home (or elsewhere) compared with in Chambers.
Most of our Members are already working from home and from close of business on Friday March 20th all of our staff will be as well – except where attendance at Chambers of a ‘skeleton team’ is absolutely necessary. To assist us in minimising social interaction, please do everything possible to send us papers in digital form rather than hardcopy and to enable conferences to happen virtually (by phone or video-conference) rather than in-person.
1COR is working with the judiciary to ensure hearings will continue to take place. All members and clerks have access to Microsoft Teams and other platforms to enable meetings, hearings and training sessions go ahead as planned.
