This month marks one year since the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically transformed our way of life. Amidst the uncertainty and upheaval this past year, there has also been tremendous creativity and resilience—and our justice system is no exception. Our slate of upcoming spring events showcases the incredible ways in which courts and legal service providers have risen to the challenge, and how unbundled legal services in the new normal can open the door for both lawyers and those seeking legal help. And don’t forget, we’re also replaying our popular Future of Legal Services Speaker Series for CLE credit. Registration for all these events is open now and we hope you’ll join us!
