On April 16, 2020, the Hague Conference on Private International Law published its newest Guide to Good Practice under the Evidence Convention. This publication looks at the development of video-links in taking evidence overseas using the Evidence Convention. It outlines good practices and has references to material from Contracting Parties.
The Evidence Convention provides a mechanism to obtain evidence overseas between treaty partners in contemplation of judicial proceedings. You can find more information on the Evidence Convention on the HCCH’s website by clicking here.
