The Virtual Perspective 101: Lessons Learned Through Real Experiences

November 5, 2020
Ankura Construction Forum and the American Bar Association Litigation Section
Webinar

Noon ET 

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an increase in virtual hearings, mediations, and depositions. This shift has removed triers-of-fact, counsel, and experts from hearing rooms into a virtual setting. Participants in these processes are now giving evidence and undergoing cross-examination in their home locations while dealing with the complexities arising from factually heavy disputes with the added communication and technology challenges of a virtual environment.

In this webinar, we’ve gathered insights from both inside and outside counsel as well as an expert witness to discuss their recent experiences in virtual trial settings and offer advice on how to best prepare for this reality.
