COVID-19 ALERT LEVEL 2 UPDATE
Hearings that have been adjourned, will be rescheduled, with consideration given on a case by case basis for those matters that require priority or urgency. Where necessary, teleconferences will be established to progress matters in the interim. Matters will be assessed to determine if this can be convened remotely, using Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMR) or teleconference hearing. Face to face hearings will require access to hearing rooms of sufficient size to enable the requisite physical distancing.
Parties are encouraged to send documents via email in the first instance, followed by hard copies as necessary, sent by courier or post.
