The Exeter Law Review Podcast is a platform for the exploration of current academic legal research and socio-legal issues. Each episodes tries to strike a balance between conceptual understanding and the practical implications of this within ‘real world’ scenarios.
Episode 1: Has COVID-19 promoted or inhibited Access to Justice? Thoughts from former judge David Tyzack
Editor in Chief Frances Hand and Managing Editor Rida Ahmed sit down (virtually!) with David Tyzack QC to discuss whether COVID-19, and the subsequent introduction of online trials nationwide, has impacted the abilities of Defendants, Witnesses and Victims to access justice. They consider the potential implications on our Article 6 right to a fair trial and Article 5 right to liberty and whether these might be infringed. Finally, they consider whether the recent cuts to Legal Aid might mean that, regardless of a global pandemic, true access to justice within the Criminal and Family Courts cannot currently be realised.
We extend our thanks to our outgoing Editor in Chief Olivia Turley for her work during the first two episodes of the Exeter Law Review Podcast. These can be accessed below:
