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. These are some of the many hearings that are scheduled to take place across the country each day. 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. You can arrange to attend any of these (or check out our Find More Hearings page for links to further hearings in the Court of Protection – there are up to 30 hearings listed each day, across England and Wales). 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!)

If hearings for the day you want to observe are not yet available, it’s fairly safe to plan on observing from 10am or from 2pm – most hearings start at one or other of those times.
