Video Depositions: The Case for Their Continued Relevance in a Post-Quarantine World (04/06/2021)

Program Number: 3181 Presenter: John C. Browne, Esq., Jeremy P. Robinson, Esq.

The program will explore the impact of the pandemic on depositions, and make the case for video depositions becoming a permanent part of the litigation process in our post-pandemic world. As we approach the one-year anniversary, the dramatic impact of the shutdown on litigation has come into focus. While the pandemic has created many challenges, there have also been some silver linings, among them the rise of video depositions. This session will examine the dramatic changes that the transition to remote depositions has created, discuss best practices for conducting video depositions, and argue for this new approach to become a permanent option in a post-pandemic world, given the dramatic improvements this method provides for both client expense and convenience. We’ll also propose changes to the federal rules that would eliminate some of the unnecessary negotiations currently involved in arranging for a video deposition.

Smells Like Teen Hackers: The Secret Origin Story of American Cybersecurity (03/30/2021)

Program Number: 3178 Presenter: David Kalat

This webinar explores how fictional scares and even more worrisome “stranger than fiction” scares in 1983 led to the enactment of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFA) and the Computer Security Act of 1987. The historical framing is used to explain why certain limitations or peculiar features of these laws were enacted. This discussion also examines criticisms of these computer security laws by civil libertarians and privacy advocates, and ways in which the laws have been challenged and amended to address those critiques. In many ways, the secret origin story of American cybersecurity begins in 1983, when the very idea of computer crimes seemed to many like science fiction. Personal computers were still a novelty, and the only users of the Internet were government scientists. But U.S. defense analysts foresaw risks from hostile governments like Russia, as well as terrorists and criminals, not to mention mischief from garden variety hackers. Their

In the Spotlight: Effective Strategies to Avoid Ethics Violations When Practicing Virtually (04/07/2021)

Program Number: 3176 Presenter: Francine Friedman Griesing, Esq.

The good old days when we worked in person, used real documents, and appeared in person for depositions, meetings and court are in the past. The recent changes due to Covid-19 and the necessity of working remotely have further revolutionized the legal profession. Technology makes it easier to generate documents and electronic communications, increased the use of remote operations, and enabled us to participate in legal proceedings from a personal device rather than in person. Due to recent events, the legal profession has been forced to pivot to rely on remote proceedings. Whether we are attending meetings, conducting depositions, interviewing witnesses, arguing before judicial officers or mediating a dispute, we are likely doing it over a virtual platform. Even after we resume primarily in person practice, the cost savings and ease of practicing remotely will likely keep these processes in place. In this program, we will discuss effective ways to
