Patrons are slowly returning to the Marin County Law Library after our reopening to the public in May 2021. At present, we require all patrons to wear masks but have mostly returned to normal operations. Two of the Library's major public programs continue on Zoom, rather than in person: Lawyers in the Library and First Thursdays at the Marin County Law Library.

In a world where hackers seem to be able to break into just about any computer connected to the internet, have you considered the security of the tech you use every day? An important question at any time, it’s even more critical in our current work-from-home era.

Owning a young bi-coastal law practice has meant both growing pains and delights. COVID-19 added an entirely unexpected twist. After a year of change and uncertainty, my firm is now fortunate enough to need to hire our first associate. The most popular question during interviews is, “Are we expected to be in the office every day?”

There you are, scrolling through an email thread or the news feed of your favorite social media site, when what do you see? A comment by a colleague or friend that’s utterly outlandish! You can hardly believe it—how could they believe that? You limber up your fingers and thumbs and get ready to tell them how wrong they are…or you decide it’s not worth it and either do your best to ignore them or unfriend them immediately and never have contact with them again.

Between September and December 2018, students of the Amsterdam Law School (UvA) and Architectural Design students of the Rietveld Academy engaged in a collaborative project that involved challenging the current structures of the criminal courtroom and developing design concepts for the ideal space for justice. Thirteen innovative, inspired and thought-provoking designs were created. After a presentation to members of the courthouse in Amsterdam, including senior judges, it was agreed that two new juvenile justice courtrooms should be created, inspired by the students’ designs. The new courtrooms are due to open in early 2021, and represent a great step forward for a more human approach to criminal law. Similar projects are now underway in other Dutch cities.
