Judicial Wing’s 6th Publication Launched
We are very pleased to announce the launch of the sixth volume in a series of publications by INSOL Europe’s Judicial Wing titled “COVID-19: Which practical measures adapted by the insolvency courts because of the pandemic are desirable to become permanent changes of their practice?”

The articles in this volume describe how and to which extent the use of technology could help judges in different European countries to cope with the adverse impact of COVID-19 on their procedural work.

The information, authored by members of the Judicial Wing, shows a broad range of different approaches to deal with the conditions under the pandemic: from no specific legislation and measures at all to legislation permitting remote hearings quite liberally and an extensive use of audio-visual technology by some courts.

The articles show that the approaches taken to dealing with the pandemic largely depend on the available financial resources and on legal traditions. Therefore, a comparison of those approaches does not necessarily help in finding the best solution for a particular jurisdiction. However, the articles can help the reader to cherry-pick from the individual measures described in the articles and assemble them in a manner befitting the situation in the reader’s home jurisdiction.

We encourage the reader to read all articles in order to benefit from the entirety of useful information to be found there. Even though the use of audio-visual technology in civil and insolvency proceedings has not increased by a degree that might have been expected, the tenor of the articles is in favour of making remote hearings possible on a permanent basis. This tenor makes us confident that the number of technology prone judges will grow steadily and result in an increased but diligent use of the available technical equipment in civil and insolvency proceedings.

We thank all the members of the Judicial Wing who have contributed articles to this collection for their great efforts to bring this project to fruition. Our thanks are also extended to Michael Quinn’s former judicial assistant Lorna Reid for her support in all administrative matters and to INSOL Europe for its technical assistance.
