ADR, Litigation, and Technology in the Time of COVID Restrictions


Due to COVID, courts and arbitrators are subject to stay at home orders, travel restrictions, social-distancing and other challenges that make it difficult to attend, participate or otherwise witness an arbitration, hearing or trial. Technology has quickly risen to accommodate these restrictions but that technology has given rise to new questions, concerns, and risks. This seminar will highlight those risks and how to address them and also present new technology for arbitration and mediation that may be the wave of the future for conflict resolutions. The world is evolving quickly into a new normal, with technology being fully integrated into litigation. Financial Institutions need to remain current, active and up to date with this new technology, the new protocols it brings and that are quickly developing, and know the pitfalls of not being prepared to take advantage of the new landscape. 

Who Should Attend: Executives, Directors, Technology Professionals, Compliance Professionals, Legal Professionals

Learning Objectives

  • Discover new technologies
  • Learn about new technology protocols for courts, litigation, arbitration and mediation
