About this program
The impact of the pandemic on the mechanisms by which we resolve legal disputes has been significant and will likely be far-lasting. Lockdowns and court closures have given rise to virtual trials and hearings, zoom mediations and remote depositions. Our common experiences with the practical aspects of working within these new forums for dispute resolution are valuable guides for successfully navigating the path forward. This session includes best practices for addressing issues of strategy, technology, technique, ethics and confidentiality for resolving disputes in this new and ever-changing environment.
