The Federal Court of Australia, the Family Court of Australia, and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia have all responded to the restrictions brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic by adopting online dispute resolution solutions.
Melbourne-based Immediation will be providing the courts with an online dispute resolution platform that incorporates video conferencing, hoping to mimic real-life mediation, and hearing sessions.
The arrangement enables the courts to resolve complex commercial and family disputes virtually, Immediation said.
The Commonwealth Courts each conducted a series of trials over the last five weeks. The trials saw high-end commercial mediations successfully conducted by Court Registrars with up to 25 participants, including clients, barristers, solicitors, and in-house counsel in virtual attendance.
