Virtual Depositions Beyond the Pandemic
Are virtual depositions better than the old way of doing things? If given the choice, should you choose a virtual deposition over a physical one?
By now, everyone knows that the world shut down in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The legal industry, like many other industries, was not spared. But slowly, the wheels of the justice system began to turn again. Judges began holding court hearings by telephone or video conference, and lawyers found ways to continue litigating their cases, including by taking “virtual” depositions.

It was the exception rather than the rule, but it was not unusual. Those remote depositions, however, looked far different than the “virtual” depositions of today.
