This session will focus on two core elements of life as a lawyer that have been dramatically impacted by the pandemic, namely people and technology. The session will look at how the pandemic has helped to focus and shape diversity & inclusion and ESG initiatives of lawyers and their clients, and how technology implemented by lawyers pre-, during and post-pandemic has impacted how lawyers and their clients communicate as well as privacy and security measures related to those communications.
