This article discusses the use of Access Grid (AG)-a form of video teleconferencing delivered over computer networks-to perform fieldwork. Interviews and group discussions were conducted with students and criminal court judges at sites remote from the fieldworker. A concept of "engagement'' was used to identify distinctive interactional features and provide a first insight into the AG as a fieldwork medium.
