No one can predict the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our health. What we do know is that there are certain ways in which we have adapted our legal practice that are likely to persist. Lawyers and our clients have adapted to remote work and virtual litigation and alternate dispute resolution proceedings. Given the cost savings and easy access with technology, remote arbitrations are likely to continue. Lawyers and arbitrators need to develop skills to perform as effectively on screen as they would in person.
This course will discuss the benefits and challenges of remote arbitration and explore proven strategies on how to prepare clients and be most effective in virtual proceedings whether you serve as an advocate for a party or the neutral arbitrator.
