The interactive heatmap showing which courts and tribunal buildings are open will be updated as data becomes available.

Law Society president Simon Davis said: ‘Courts must be able to reopen once this crisis abates. We must be wary to avoid any risk of significant and permanent damage to the public’s ability to access justice.’
