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 remains the safeguarding of the health and wellbeing of clients, staff, Members and the wider community. We can achieve these objectives at the same time as maintaining services to clients because all our telephone and IT systems are cloud-based. Thus, our phones and all our IT systems operate exactly as they would in Chambers even though staff and Members are working from home – unless physical attendance at Chambers is absolutely necessary.
To assist us in minimising social interaction, please send us papers in digital form rather than hardcopy (as far as possible) and arrange for 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 conferencing platforms to enable meetings, hearings and training sessions go ahead as planned.
If you wish to contact us for any reason please do so via our clerks using the following contact details.
