Scheduling in blocks? Individual meetings? Backup planning? Dealing with the waiting room? Since the start of the pandemic, courts across the country have adapted their processes to allow for remote and virtual proceedings. Join us for a second discussion in a series of webinars with a focus on best practices for engaging with attorneys and people without lawyers in remote and virtual hearings. What are the logistical tips that judges have refined to make remote/virtual proceedings as effective as possible? This webinar will
feature a high-energy and practical discussion from three thoughtful judges who have been operating much of their court docket remotely/virtually and how they have addressed challenges of adapting their court process to a virtual environment.
