NSW Bar Dispute Resolution Centre - Virtual Courtroom


The NSW Bar Dispute Resolution Centre remains open and is available for hire, also, the rooms have been re-purposed to be able to provide a virtual courtroom style arrangement by using the commercial grade video conferencing (“VC”) services in the Hearing Rooms on the 1st Floor Selborne Chambers. Capacity limits on the rooms have been introduced to comply with Health Orders, however the Centre is otherwise functioning as normal. Further information relating to the rooms and rates can be found at this link: https://nswbardrc.com.au/

The VC services in the hearing rooms are compatible with a number of video conference platforms (ie: Cisco Webex, SIP, Microsoft Teams, Zoom etc.). More information can be found at https://nswbardrc.com.au/video-conferencing

For those who may want to use the Centre to access VC court proceedings for either a single day or over multiple days we have onsite technical support available to assist with both setup and monitoring throughout the day and this support is being offered at no extra charge. The following link further outlines the compatible VC platforms available for use in the Centre: https://www.ccl.com.au/files/documents/Interoperability.pdf and we are currently and in the past have successfully connected and run daily virtual court proceedings over multiple court jurisdictions.
