Path Forward: Coronavirus and the Law

Event Date: 
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
America pivoted to create a virtual legal system at the height of the pandemic. Now that the shutdown is beginning to ease, the courts are beginning to reopen and people are turning to judges for help with everything from contract disputes to bankruptcy filings.  

This week’s episode of Path Forward is dedicated to answering questions about COVID-19 and the law.  

  • How has COVID-19 impacted the legal system, and what does that mean for you? 

  • Why are so many organizations worried about getting sued, even if they follow applicable guidelines?  

  • What are courts doing to reduce backlogs and ensure disputes are resolved quickly? 

  • Why should you be concerned about the wave of insolvencies, and what steps can we take to prevent bankruptcy courts from being overwhelmed? 

Path Forward events take place at 3 p.m. EST every Thursday. Register Now.
