This note provides preliminary guidance for practitioners and policy makers on key issues to consider in ensuring access to justice in the context of the COVID-19 crisis. It is divided into three sections, Preparation, Response and Recovery. While this note is not exhaustive and there may be chronological overlap across the different phases as states face differing dimensions of the crisis – including adjusting existing or introducing new measures when second or third wave outbreaks may occur – it aims to highlight some of the critical elements to consider to enable the justice sector to respond effectively and address the short, medium, and long-term impact of the crisis.
