COVID-19: Remote Learning and Working for Law Students and Lawyers with Disabilities

The legal profession and the legal academy adapted quickly to remote working and remote teaching in mid-March when the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic became clear, but not all lawyers and law students have fared equally well. This webinar will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on remote learning and remote work for law students and lawyers with disabilities. Three experts will share lessons learned and provide strategies for supporting lawyers and law students with disabilities as we move forward in uncertain times in a world that is almost certain to include more remote working and remote teaching than our pre-COVID world.
