The Impact of COVID-19 on the Practice of Law: Now and in the Future - Free Alumni Webinar

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

COVID-19 has required attorneys to be creative problem solvers and adapt to the "new normal." From enhanced virtual conferences, challenges with employee hiring and development, and more pressure from clients for cost savings, to interactions in different ways with the courts and even creating new service offerings, legal professionals are navigating a new landscape.

Jon Hoak, LW'77, a fellow Drake Law alumnus, will highlight the trends that have been accelerated due to COVID-19, identify opportunities that have arisen, and discuss tools for adapting to the new environment and working in a virtual world. He will also share which changes are here to stay after recovery from the pandemic.

Jon Hoak co-founded the international legal operations consulting firm, UpLevel Ops, after a distinguished legal career which included serving as general counsel for two large public companies and partnership in private practice.
