Over the past nine weeks, you’ve had to adjust to modified timelines, working and arguing remotely, and new technology. You’re probably wondering what you’ll have to adjust to next, and how to prepare for litigation in the post-Covid transition. That’s why we’re sponsoring a free webinar on the shape of litigation to come on Monday, June 1 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
Register now to hear expert litigators — Brent J. Arnold, Maya Borooah, and the Honourable Colin L. Campbell — talk about what’s worked, what hasn’t, and what to expect in the post-Covid courts. Some of the topics they’ll cover will include: remote trial practice, the importance of oral vs written advocacy, and managing the oncoming caseload. Our own CEO, Aaron Wenner, will moderate.
The 60-minute webinar is hosted by the Toronto Lawyers Association, and accredited by the Law Society of Ontario. That means you’ll earn CPD credits when you attend, as the program contains 30 minutes of Professionalism Content and 30 minutes of Substantive Content. It’s all part of our commitment to give you the resources you need to work through these times.
