HM courts and tribunals service contradicts the government in saying that as from Monday 27th July 2

As from Monday anyone that attends court in England will have to wear a face mask. This is welcome news for many lawyers and directly contradicts what the Government said just over a week ago with regards to the public not being required to wear masks in court buildings. With regards to what happens inside the courtroom itself, this will be left to the individual judge but social distancing rules will be observed and it is likely that masks may be removed when evidence is being presented and when people are speaking in court. This will ensure that the safety of the court and tribunal users remains paramount. Again, We do not know how long these changes are for but they illustrate how Covid has changed the way in which the law in this country is being administered.
