The mechanism for commenting on court broadcasts by court commentators from "Trial in simple words" from 2015 is an important aspect in protecting the right to open hearings, access to justice, and education is the development of. Video commentaries help court commentators (lawyers, experts in the field of justice) explain to the audience the procedural aspects of broadcast by technical means of the courts. As of August 2018, the team of court commentators has 9 people who comment on different types of court proceedings. We have developed a unique training program for the preparation of court commentators, which was attended by 65 participants from 14 regions and Kyiv during 2016-2018.
