Interested in seeing Justice in Action?

This is where we provide details of hearings you can observe right away. They are chosen from the listings published in the Court of Protection’s Daily Cause Lists. They are only available after 6pm on the day before the hearing.

The Featured Hearings we list here are provided for convenience, and for ease-of-access for people who may be unfamiliar with observing hearings in the Court of Protection. This is just a selection from about 20-30 hearings that are scheduled to take place across the country each day. You can check out our Find More Hearings page for links to further hearings in the Court of Protection). We also tweet all the hearings we know about, so check our Twitter feed.

You do not need our permission to do this – and you should feel free to go ahead and arrange to access a hearing without contacting us in advance, unless you could use information or support we haven’t included on this site (though we would love you to write about your experiences and observations for our blog!)

1. Check what hearings are listed

2. Pick one at time you want to observe

3. Send an email to the address given

4. They will send you a video-link (or phone you if it’s a phone hearing)
