The future is now, and the NCBA Appellate Practice Section wants to help you be ready.  With the state’s appellate courts, and other courts around the country, going to remote videoconference hearings because of the Coronavirus pandemic, a special program has been put together for May 27.  It is described as follows:

Appellate Practice Section Panel
Preparing for WebEx Oral Arguments in NC Appellate Courts

You are invited to join the Appellate Practice Section for a Zoom panel to learn about preparing for and presenting remote video oral argument in our NC Appellate Courts via WebEx. Topics will include technology requirements and setup, dealing with technical difficulties, looking and sounding your best, and more.

Panelists |
Judge Lucy Inman, presided over the COA’s first-ever WebEx oral argument
Amy Funderburk, Clerk of the NC Supreme Court
Fred Wood, Director of Technology for the NC Supreme Court and COA
John Korzen, Director of the Advocacy Clinic at Wake Forest Law School
Luke Baker, argued via WebEx at the COA, Law Offices of L.T. Baker, P.A.

Date and Time | Wednesday, May 27 | 12 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to hear from and learn from some of the most knowledgeable individuals in the state on this topic, and will help you be as ready as possible to tackle your next (or first) remote oral argument.

Note to practitioners: try to avoid the mid-argument toilet flush.
