Transnational Use of Video Conferencing in Criminal Proceedings

  • Enhancing the use of remote hearings and video testimonies

Online, 27 March 2023 – 28 March 2023

Event number:

Area of law:


In several Member States of the European Union, videoconferencing has already proven to be an efficient tool in terms of both facilitating cross-border criminal proceedings and reducing the costs involved.

If the benefits of increased videoconferencing are clear, there are undeniable risks and potential drawbacks that must also be considered. A central concern about videoconferencing in EU cross-border criminal proceedings is the status of the suspects held in custody and their access to lawyers.

This online seminar will debate the actions that must be undertaken to make judicial authorities aware of the use of videoconferencing in cross-border criminal proceedings. It will present existing national, European and international experiences and it will assess how the use of videoconferencing can help to rationalise, simplify or possibly complicate criminal procedures and trials. The seminar will include some practical demonstrations. 

Key topics

  • Internet-related challenges and difficulties in videoconferencing
  • National experiences
  • Lessons to be learned from international tribunals
  • Defence rights

Who should attend?

Judges, prosecutors, defence lawyers, law enforcers, civil servants and policymakers active in the field of criminal law.
