“Helping the Courts Through the Pandemic and Beyond”

September 9, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
$10 for Members $15 for Non-Members

With the reality of an extended and gradual return to a “next normal” and the likelihood of disrupted court dockets for many months, we are all contemplating how to ensure continuity of the judicial process. In this webinar, Judge Thomas Anderle and Judge James Herman will provide an update on behalf of the Santa Barbara County Superior Court Civil, Family Law, and Probate/Trust divisions. The speaker panel will explore the evolving state of dispute resolution during the COVID-19 crisis, including grassroots efforts to resolve cases outside of court and how neutrals are assisting the court moving forward. The session will provide a view from the Bench, private practice, and ADR neutrals as each shares recent updates, trends, and best practices to ensure continuity of the judicial process.
