Short Update: Barristers in England and Wales can break quarantine to attend court or tribunal hearing 

FT Admin - August 26, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Access to a lawyer

The Bar Council has received confirmation from the Department for Transport that barristers in England and Wales returning from countries that are subject to a 14-day self-isolation period, will be able to break quarantine to attend a court or tribunal hearing. This exemption applies to anyone who is required to take part in a hearing. They are required to return to self-isolation for the remainder of the 14-day period after the court attendance.
