The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of legal practice. Although briefs continue to be filed electronically, in-person oral arguments have been suspended. The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit began hearing oral arguments telephonically on March 30.  The Indiana Supreme Court has postponed oral arguments until May and advised counsel it "may order the argument to be conducted remotely by video or other electronic means."
How does a remote oral argument, conducted by video or telephone, differ from conventional oral arguments? Join us (remotely, of course) to hear practical tips from judges and advocates about how best to prepare and deliver a remote oral argument.​
