While courthouses and personal injury trials pick up, many believe that remote proceedings are here to stay, especially for arbitrations where it would be more convenient and less expensive than meeting in person. According to Law.com, here are a few tips to help your remote proceedings run smoothly.
Be familiar with the technology you will be using for your remote proceedings. Do a few test runs with your team and practice the points you want to address. Having a practice run or two with the technology you will use for the proceeding will help you be more confident.
Consider having you or a member of your team run a practice test with your client and experts. Have your client and experts use the computer they plan on using the day of the proceedings. Having them use the same device will help you and your teamwork with any difficulties they run into, including their microphone, camera, and audio working.
If you feel your client is struggling with the technology for the proceedings-consider having them come to your office for the proceedings. You can have them in a separate room and set up a computer to use for the proceedings.
