10:30–11:30 a.m. Virtually Litigating: Pros and Cons of Litigation Practices Developed During COVID-19 (CLE 1 credit)
IN PERSON/LIVE-STREAMEDCLE Materials Panelist Biographies
Hosted by Michael Kaplan L’11, Partner, Lowenstein Sandler LLP
The way we practice law turned on a dime last year as the world adapted to a remote working environment. Litigators in particular faced new challenges as in-person interactions with clients, adversaries, judges, and juries moved to Zoom. Now many claim virtual depositions, mediations, court hearings, and trials are here to stay. But at what expense? This presentation will discuss the pros and cons of litigation technology and practices developed during the coronavirus pandemic. Specific topics will include how costs have changed, how the virtual environmental impacts advocacy, and what gets lost when cases proceed outside of a courtroom.
