In the wake of COVID-19, procedures are changing throughout the legal system, and those of administrative tribunals are no exception. What specific challenges have administrative tribunals encountered as they attempt to manage their files and adjudicate hearings? How have tribunals managed issues of rescheduling, and what does a video hearing look like in practice? How have protocols changed for tribunals in Canada, and how do they affect tribunals, lawyers, parties and the general public? What lessons and new procedures will tribunals take away from the health crisis?
