Webinar: Considerations Leading Up to Remote Hearings

Addressing the digital divide. Communicating scheduling changes. Providing legal information in layman’s terms and in commonly spoken languages on court websites. Providing e-filing for both represented and self-represented parties. 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 last discussion in this remote hearing series of webinars focused on how courts can consider planning for all of the steps before a case ends up in the courtroom. This webinar will feature a high-energy, practical discussion about the ways that courts can adapt to make the steps leading up to a hearing best for all court users. Panelists will also offer practical tips for making these processes effective.
