On Tuesday, August 3, 2021, Sean Coughlin and Jacqueline Meyers will co-present a live podcast in partnership with West LegalEdcenter and Celesq. Their program, titled Protect the Exec! Virtual Hearings & Changing Perceptions of Executive Testimony, is part of Bressler's "Raising the Bar" podcast series.
With the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions lifting, has the surge in the accessibility and use of virtual platforms affected the legal standard for providing witness testimony? Sean and Jacqueline will discuss whether the global pandemic has meaningfully changed the practical and logistical considerations for appearing and testifying. C-suite executive testimony provides a compelling study on how virtual mediums—though commonplace—ultimately cannot supplant substantive legal standards of relevance and undue burden. Join us to discuss how C-suite executives highlight the changing nature of virtual testimony, including perceived ease and accessibility.
