CCAT is pleased to announce that the next Virtual Hearings 2.0 – Taking your electronic hearing skills to the next level workshop will take place on Friday, March 12, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (ET) by Zoom.  There are a limited number of spots available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Don’t delay - register today to reserve your spot!

Now that you've mastered the basics of Zoom and other virtual platforms, it’s time to build the skills you need to conduct hearings online and by phone and to do so fairly and effectively.  Even as some tribunals return to in-person hearings, it is clear that virtual hearings or hybrid processes are here to stay. In an interactive webinar led by experienced adjudicators and practitioners, we will focus both on preparing for the complex virtual hearing as well as share our best tips with participants on how to run the hearing.

Preparing for the Virtual Hearing

  • managing adjournment requests/objections to electronic hearings
  • fairness and access - ensuring all parties can meaningfully participate in the virtual hearings
  • effective case management - what you can do before the hearing to ensure efficiency, fairness, and access – checklists and lessons learned

Running a Virtual Hearing

  • How to open the hearing – tips for starting off right and what to tell the parties
  • Tricks and tips for receiving evidence electronically, including witnesses and documents
  • Dealing with the unexpected – managing issues that come up during a virtual hearing
  • Ensuring public access to the hearing
The training will be offered in a workshop format, with a mix of formal, presentations and interactive breakout sessions to discuss scenarios and challenges that occur during a hearing. Participants will reconvene following the breakouts to share key take-aways and what was learned with the larger group.

Friday, March 12, 2021; 1-4 p.m. (Eastern Time)

2019 ended with a bang when the Supreme Court issued its decisions in Vavilov and Bell/NFL. For a while Vavilov was all we could talk about. Then Covid-19 locked us down and administrative tribunals responded. Time for a virtual check in and catch up!

Join Michelle Flaherty, Margaret Leighton, Joseph Cheng and David Wright for a fast paced review of the evolving Covid-related caselaw, our world post-Vavilov and other decisions of interest to adjudicators and members of the administrative law community.
