Monday’s diary of a licensing lawyer…..

Finally have our IT people agree that I can bypass normal security for remote hearings – the next three are on Skype then Microsoft Teams and then Zoom. The last one was on Teams but anyone other than Council officers were only permitted to join by audio and the “live feed” had a lag of about 3 minutes.  Some consistency would be nice but at least no-one has suggested using House Party, Facebook or What’s App (yet!).
