Virtual Practice Of Law In The Surrogate’s Court: Practice Pitfalls And Insider Tips

Virtual Practice Of Law In The Surrogate’s Court: Practice Pitfalls And Insider Tips


With most Courts instituting mandatory e-Filing and conducting appearances and hearings/trials remotely since Spring 2020, Surrogate’s Court practitioners needed to quickly adopt a new skill set to ensure the ability to bring new matters before the Court and advocate for their clients on existing matters. This program focuses on the Court Attorneys’ perspective: what advantages and drawbacks come along with virtual practice of law? What is it like conducting calendar calls and hearings online? What strategies – successful or otherwise – have they seen attorneys employ to conduct virtual appearances? Participants can expect the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of virtual practice and tips and techniques they can employ to make themselves more effective advocates in the virtual Courthouse. Please note: the Court employees are providing personal accounts and suggestions; they do not speak for the Unified Court System or the Office of Court Administration.
