Hear from the Honorable Anne-Christine Massullo (S.F. Superior Court),
the Honorable Brad Seligman (Alameda County Superior Court), Zela
‘’Zee’’ G. Claiborne, Esq. (JAMS), and Claude Stern (Partner, Quinn
Emanuel), as we discuss their experience in trials and arbitrations—
including jury trials!—conducted entirely over Zoom and similar platforms. You’ll learn what parts of your existing trial practice will translate
well in a virtual setting—and how to adapt what you’ve done in the
past to reach a Zoom audience. We will also discuss how pandemic era virtual practice will impact trials and arbitrations in years ahead,
even as vaccines make “the old normal” possible again.
- Practical and logistical advice for practitioners headed into virtual trials
