Auckland Branch Seminar - A Guide to Court Use of Audio Visual Links (AVL)

Monday, 9 May 2016 4:30pm - 6pm

  • 37 spaces available.

At this session, presented by Naresh Kandpal and Alan Ettles from the Ministry of Justice with guest speaker, Marie Dyhrberg QC, will discuss the benefits of using Audio Visual Links in the courts and the process counsel will need to follow to use the AVL suites. 

Audio Visual Links (AVL) uses audiovisual conferencing technology to allow people to participate remotely in a court proceeding. Following the enactment of legislation in 2010, AVL is now available for a wider range of hearings, and will be standard for administrative appearances, where facilities are available.  There are currently over 40 courtrooms and hearing rooms that have existing AVL facilities or can support leased AVL units.
