A new tool to help solicitors and the public find out which courts are operational throughout the emergency period is available on the Law Society website.
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.’
*The Law Society is keeping the coronavirus situation under review and monitoring the advice it receives from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Public Health England.
