Conducting Depositions Online in the Wake of COVID-19 (7/29/20)
As Chicago slowly starts to reopen after the months-long shutdown surrounding COVID-19, are you prepared to move your depositions forward online? Beware: it takes more than a webcam and an Internet connection to safely and securely undertake the process. A complete understanding of what remote options are available and how they work is critical to avoiding the pitfalls of inaccurately hosting depositions online.
Understandably, as the volume of litigation continues to climb and the availability of professional court reporters continues to dwindle, law firms and corporations need reliable alternatives to soundly producing the written record.
Now, more than ever, attorneys and their teams must inject new efficiencies into the way depositions are managed. There are two reliable concepts that every team should consider:
Remote Depositions – Videoconferencing: Witness and Court Reporter are in the
same room while members of the legal teams may be remote.
Remote Reporters – Videoconferencing: Witness, Court Reporter and entire legal
team is remote (as permitted by state laws and regulations).
Take immediate action to become proficient in managing your cases online! This seminar will allow you to witness first-hand how important cloud-based functions work in remote depositions, such as real-time transcription of the testimony, electronic exhibits, remote swear-ins, and more. In addition, we will cover what you need to know about working with a remote court reporter to ensure that the record is captured accurately and efficiently.
