In recent years, litigation has seen increasing use of technology and, in particular, the use of remote hearings. These changes are transformative and with the COVID-19 pandemic this trend has accelerated. It is not a temporary measure—civil and criminal justice is moving to a new model.

  • What does this mean for courtroom counsel?
  • What are the professionalism and ethical issues around remote advocacy?
  • How do these issues have a bearing on best practices and being effective counsel?

In the face of these questions—join our faculty for the civil and criminal counsel perspectives and the view from the bench perspective on what it means to be a lawyer in the digital age. 

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 1 hour (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management). Please note: The CPD hours of the rebroadcast will either meet or exceed the CPD hours of the original live webinar course.
