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 the second discussion in a series of webinars focused on best practices for engaging with attorneys and self-represented litigants in remote and virtual hearings. This webinar will feature a high-energy and practical discussion with three thoughtful judges who have been operating much of their court docket remotely/virtually. They will share how they have addressed challenges in adapting their court processes to a virtual environment and offer practical tips for making remote/virtual proceedings effective.
