Lawyering In the Era of the Zoom Boom

This short MTLA survey is designed to collect information from civil practitioners within the Maine Bar about their experiences with remote proceedings (i.e. hearings, depositions, ADR, oral arguments, etc.) during the pandemic.  We want to know what has worked, what has gone wrong, and what can be improved upon in the future.  We want to hear from members on whether certain remote proceedings and technologies should remain mandatory and/or become normalized as part of regular court rules and procedures in 2021 and beyond.

The MTLA intends to review the results of this survey in an effort to understand where members of our organization and others stand on remote proceedings.  We also intend to share the results with Maine State Court System, its leadership, and its stakeholder working groups.

Take the Survey here.
