How and why are court cases being streamed online?
Selected cases from the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) are now being live-streamed on the judiciary’s YouTube channel.
Live-streaming of selected cases began in November 2018 to improve public access to, and understanding of, the work of the courts. It is anticipated that every hearing in Court 71 (the Master of the Rolls’ court) will be live streamed.
