In the aftermath of COVID-19, lawyers swiftly transformed their office practices to virtual practices, adapting to changing laws and court procedures while grappling with new and unfamiliar technologies to serve their clients, interact with colleagues and communicate with the courts and adverse counsel. “COVID-ready” lawyers who closed their offices (temporarily) opened up a whole new paradigm for practice, re-shaped, re-modeled and re-ordered by the exigencies of COVID-19. Remote practice has presented many challenges for lawyers along with real advantages. This interactive program will look back and ahead to highlight some of the key “lessons and learnings” of COVID-19 as the panelists share their unique perspectives and insights on the topics below:

  • The future and relevance of the physical “office”
  • Balancing technology with confidentiality, security and privacy
  • Practicing without borders and its impact on unauthorized practice
  • Emerging entrepreneurial opportunities and offering non-legal services
  • Trends in lawyer advertising, solicitation and social media use
  • Moving the needle on racial justice and gender equity
  • Challenges to mentorship, training and professional development
