With many states adopting stay-at-home orders or recommendations, more and more appellate courts are moving to online arguments through various video platforms. Hear from our expert panel on best practices for such arguments. Jim Hivner, Clerk of the Appellate Courts in Tennessee, will discuss the technical logistics of setting up such arguments.
Judge Albert Diaz, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and Justice Eva Guzman, Texas Supreme Court, will discuss how the bench can best adapt to this kind of argument. Finally, our practitioners Andrew Simpson and Jeffrey Garish, will guide you on the ways to best present your case under these circumstances.
This program will provide a review of recent cases about accessing court records and provide guidance to communications lawyers looking to obtain these documents for their work. This webinar is free to members of the Forum on Communications Law and students.
