The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented delay to the efficient and timely resolution of civil litigation in the commonwealth. Facing this access to justice crisis, the Trial Court Department has worked tirelessly to provide alternative means and paths toward resolution of civil litigation, including but not limited to Zoom hearings, three-judge bench trials, judicial settlement conferences and conciliation referrals. Please join our esteemed panel of Superior Court judges, Hon. Heidi E. Brieger, Hon. Michael K. Callan, Hon. Shannon Frison, Hon. Hélène Kazanjian, Hon. Maynard M. Kirpalani and Hon. Douglas H. Wilkins, who will discuss existing and foreseeable options for addressing this crisis during our next MBA View from the Bench program, Advancing Civil Cases During the Pandemic.

Members of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys who are not MBA members can enjoy a special discounted rate of $25. To purchase the On Demand, please contact the MBA's Member Services Center at (617) 338-0530.
