The New York State Bar Association will present a virtual CLE webinar that looks at all the legal issues surrounding the coronavirus pandemic in New York City, including the perspective of the Mayor’s Office.
Entitled “The COVID-19 Crisis and New York City’s Response: Legal Issues,” the event will be at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12. It is free for NYSBA members and $150 for non-members.
Learn what steps New York City government has taken during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak to keep communities safe.
Liz Benjamin, managing director of Marathon Strategies in Albany, will lead a conversation that includes Kapil Longani, counsel to the mayor of New York City; Bess Chiu, the mayor’s chief of staff; Kate Cocklin, the mayor’s deputy counsel and NYSBA President-Elect T.
