BREAKING NEWS – G1/21 – Still Waiting for an Answer


28th May 2021

The oral proceedings before the Enlarged Board of Appeal to discuss the question of whether oral proceedings by video conference can be appointed without the consent of the parties was held (by video conference) today.

However, we are still no closer to finding out whether video conference can be used for all oral proceedings without the parties’ consent as the Enlarged Board agreed that providing a copy of the President’s submissions to the parties two days before the hearing did not give sufficient time for the parties to consider and comment on these.  This was despite the fact that the President’s comments had been on the online public file for a month.  Therefore, a deadline of 25 June has been set for the parties to provide their comments on the President’s submissions, with the oral proceedings to be scheduled to take place shortly after that date, probably early in July.
