The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be overstated. It has changed how and what we litigate. In this virtual session we will explore together the procedural and substantive impacts of COVID-19. The session will begin with networking and then a short full group session to explain the topics and format. We will then break into virtual rooms organized by geographic region in order to increase interaction and to provide all members a chance to share their knowledge and experiences. Finally, we will conclude back together again with take-aways from each group, followed by more networking.

Please join us for this interactive session to explore litigating in the existing pandemic environment—does it provide new benefits, opportunities, and challenges across a wide-range of the litigation landscape (panacea) or does it merely appear so (placebo).
