Courts and practitioners alike have spent the past year navigating unprecedented challenges and
adapting to litigating cases during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Join us to discuss the
changes in federal litigation in the past year, in both the civil and criminal context, including
pre-trial detentions, compassionate and early releases, remote hearings, depositions and
mediations. How are these issues being handled in the NDNY in the short term, and which changes
might be here to stay?
