Litigation | MCBA Litigation Section Webinar
The Impact of COVID-19 on Civil Litigation
A panel of four seasoned litigators (2 plaintiff side and 2 defense side) will discuss the impact COVID-19 currently has on litigating civil cases and its likely impact on civil practice in the future. The panelists will address California Court’s Emergency Rules and Administrative Orders which impact filings and discovery, strategies for moving cases forward and reaching resolution, and the potential effect on jury selection. Additional topics include proposed new statutory immunities and surges in certain types of claims. After the program, we invite all attendees to share their experiences in navigating civil cases in the era of COVID-10 and their expectations for the future.

After the program from 5 - 6 pm, the litigation section will hold a virtual mixer to meet other litigation section members and connect while we are all sheltering in place. Join in the fun!

MCBA Member Listserv for Practice Areas
MCBA's new listserv with Groupvine is up and running. The practice area email groups are a convenient way to communicate and can be especially helpful at this time due to the many challenges from COVID-19 that impact both you and your clients.
