April 8: "You're on Mute" - Lessons from a pandemic
COVID-19 brought many sudden changes to administrative tribunals—and many of these changes are here to stay. We all had to be flexible and find new approaches to conducting daily business. This session will feature members of the Canadian Bar Association highlighting the many positive impacts from these changes, which are discussed in a recent CBA Taskforce Report. The session will also explore some tales of spectacular failure. Trust us: for many adjudicators, being on mute was the least of their problems!
Brad Regehr, President, Canadian Bar Association (CBA) and Co-chair of the CBA Task Force on Justice Issues Arising from COVID-19 (Maurice Law)
Karen Eltis, Faculty member at the University of Ottawa Centre for Law, Technology and Society and Full Professor of Law within the Faculty of Law, Civil Law Section
Christopher Wirth, Past Chair of the CBA Administrative Law Section and CBA Task Force on Justice Issues Arising from COVID-19 member (Keel Cottrell LLP)
Marc-André O’Rourke, CBA Advocacy Lawyer and Task Force Project Director
