Virtual Hearings in Agency Adjudication

This project explores the use of virtual hearings, in which one or more participants attend remotely using a personal computer or mobile device, in agency adjudications. Virtual hearings have become increasingly common in agency adjudications, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, but they can pose unique logistical challenges and raise questions of accessibility, transparency, privacy, and data security. Recommendations will identify best practices for improving existing virtual-hearing programs and establishing new ones when appropriate.
