The first mobile court in England and Wales will soon be launched. This will travel around the country allowing witnesses and defendants to give evidence via video link without travelling to court.

This is the first in many new processes to be introduced to reduce pressure on the justice system and bring the courts system up to date with modern technology. Other initiatives include pop up courts in village town halls and Skype judgments.

Hopefully these schemes can be put into practice sooner rather than later to ensure the system is adapting to modern life and running as smoothly as possible for those seeking justice.
