Navigating, Innovating and Litigating through the COVID-19 Global Pandemic

July 30, 2020
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


These are unchartered, unprecedented times where COVID-19 remains a national public health as well as a social and economic crisis. Litigants as well as courts (state & federal) continue to balance the various interests implicated by the public health emergencies and guidance for business and for court operations, including the resumption of in-court proceedings, as all seek to ensure the administration of justice continues. No doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated courts’ turning to technology in order to deliver justice. With virtual meetings, mediations, arbitrations, and court proceedings on the rise, much of it sensitive and highly confidential, a litany of extraordinary legal (constitutional, practical and ethical) issues must be considered. This CLE will explore and analyze the benefits, risks, and concomitant opportunities of virtual litigation (court & ADR) and consider solutions to these complex questions during this "new normal" time.
