In the legal practice and in legal academia we seem to all be waiting to see what the "new normal" will be post-COVID. I think that most people agree that there will be more remote work and more remote legal education. Although I was initially critical of online law teaching, I have come around to support it--partially because I think that we need to prepare our students to practice in this increasingly digital/remote world. To that end, I have spent the last year working on a book on online law teaching, which will be in print soon.
Last week, my co-editor, Tracy Norton, and I hosted an online conference on the book. The first panel looked at the future of law practice, and it was a star-studded cast:
- David Lat, Founder, Original Jurisdiction, Moderator
- Katie Biber, Chief Legal Officer, Brex
- Hon. Stephen Louis A. Dillard, Presiding Judge, Court of Appeals of Georgia
- Patricia J. Martin, Office Managing Shareholder, Littler, St. Louis, MO
- Raffi Melkonian, Partner, Wright Close & Barger LLP
- Hon. Emily Miskel, Judge, 470th District Court, Texas
The video from that panel is now up on the conference website. I anyone interested in this topic to check it out.
