In line with the latest government guidance the JCPC building will be closed for the coming weeks. We anticpate that hearings and judgments in the Easter term (13 April - 28 May 2021) will be conducted virtually, via WebEx video conferencing, and are available to watch live and on-demand. Staff and justices will work remotely, except for essential activities that require attendance in the building. We have put in measures to ensure that the building is compliant with government guidance.
