DC BPR On Display

There are few things that are more exciting than the recent move to remote access of oral arguments before the District of Columbia Board on Professional Responsibility. 

I just had my first opportunity to hear and see a remote argument in real time.

And the Board has a web page that stores the arguments for future review. 

What a pleasure it is to have the opportunity to hear and see these proceedings, the questions of the Board members and the responses of counsel. Further, judging by the views, I am not the only person who finds value in this new resource. 

A real step forward in transparency and an excellent teaching tool for PR profs.

Postscript: I am grateful that there is no digital record of my dozens of arguments before this tribunal. There are more than a few memorable moments mercifully lost in the mists of history. (Mike Frisch)

The California State Bar Court is now conducting trials via Zoom and these can be viewed by the public as well. My turn in the barrel doesn't come until August. http://www.statebarcourt.ca.gov/Portals/2/documents/generalOrders/Public-Events-Week-of-July-6-RV.pdf
