“In Conversation” Webinar: Coronavirus and the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria


In the latest “In Conversation” webinar on Wednesday 10 June 2020, Her Honour Judge Lisa Hannan, Chief Magistrate of Victoria, and Daniel Gurvich QC, Barrister and Chair of the Criminal Bar Association, talked about how the Magistrates’ Court is tackling the impact of COVID-19. When the pandemic struck, Her Honour’s key priority was to ensure the Court would not cease operations. Therefore, the Court relisted some 60,000 cases. The Chief Magistrate acknowledged the cooperation and flexibility of members of the Bar, solicitors and members of the Law Institute of Victoria, staff at Court Services Victoria, Victoria Legal Aid, the Victoria Police and prosecutors.
