Virtual Hearings: A Practical Guide to Litigating Remotely


CLE credits earned: 1 General Credit (WA 1 Law and Legal)

This course will provide practical advice for attorneys preparing to conduct a trial, evidentiary hearing, or arbitration remotely, based on our recent experience preparing for and conducting a 2-week virtual hearing. We will provide general advice for handling the technical and logistical aspects of a virtual hearing and will specifically address the challenges (and solutions!) that a virtual hearing can present in persuading a fact-finder who is remote, examining witnesses from afar, and handling exhibits entirely electronically.

•  Presenting your case to a remote factfinder
