Can you help a team at the Oxford Centre for Socio-legal studies support people attending hearings online?

A team at the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal studies, led by Linda Mulcahy, has been funded by the ESRC to help develop some short introductory films for tribunal users who are due to appear in court online. The team are working in partnership with HMCTS on this project. They have developed a short pilot film aimed at helping members of the public and are in the process of testing it out with as many people as possible in the hope of better meeting the information needs of lay users. Do you have 15 mins to watch the film and give the team some feedback?

The film and survey are accessible via this link

If you know of anyone else who may be interested in taking part, then please feel free to circulate the survey to them as well.

For more information or to discuss this project with me or another member of our project team, then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with This email address is being protected from spambots.
