Guidelines for the Use of Remote Video in Depositions, Hearing, Trials and Appellate Arguments

The American College of Trial Lawyers’ Task Force on Advocacy in the 21st Century has released five papers designed to help judges and lawyers face legal and practical issues that arise from the use of remote video.  The Task Force, appointed by the College’s Executive Committee, includes judges and lawyers from the United States and Canada with a broad range of experience in criminal and civil law.

Each Interim Guideline addresses a topic of interest to civil trial lawyers: depositions, hearings, nonjury trials, and appellate arguments.  Of special interest is a paper called “Mastering Zoom Advocacy,” which is helpful regardless of the remote video application used.
