Was court-life across Europe prepared for the COVID-19 crisis? by José CARLES, Laurent Le PAJOLEC and David ORSULA (Co-chairs of the Insolvency Tech & Digital Assets Wing)

COVID-19 and the correspondent lockdown measures have affected our lives in many ways. From a legal perspective, it has proven that jurisdictions that were already adapted to technology have provided a better response in the administration of justice.

This means, ultimately, better guarantees towards the right of legal protection of European citizens as well as a guarantee of the effectiveness of the principle of separation of powers.
