If we have learned one thing from the pandemic, it’s the fact that we can’t always meet in person but we can continue business.

In this podcast, the speakers will discuss ways that eSignatures, remote online notaries and virtual rooms can eliminate the need to travel to an in person Notary.

Questions the Co-Moderators will ask Speakers:
○ Could you please tell our listeners a little about yourselves? Aaron, let's start with you.
○ If you both could briefly chime in as to what e-signatures are and what you can accomplish with them, that would be a great place to start.
○ Can you explain for our listeners, how Notaries worked pre-pandemic?
○ With the ongoing digital transformation, eSignatures became very popular in the last 2 years. More eSignature vendors offer unique features to digitize traditional workflows in different industries. We know you are familiar with online notarization and Virtual Rooms. Can you tell us more about Remote Online Notarization and Virtual Rooms? What are those and how can they help busy attorneys?

This podcast will be an overview of the solutions in M365 today, solutions that are either baked in to our existing M365 licenses at no additional cost or available at a nominal cost, that offer the possibility to retire and displace more expensive 3rd party solutions.

The legal community responded to the impact of the pandemic and lockdown by innovating rapidly and adopting virtual hearings. The UK commercial courts were ahead of the curve and delayed only four cases during the national lockdown period.

International arbitration matters continued to be heard around the world. The real innovation lies beyond just the use of video conferencing tools like Zoom and Microsoft.

In this podcast, learn how virtual hearings have continued to evolve, improve, and gain traction throughout the world in 2021.

Questions Marlene will ask the speakers:

  • What are the most significant changes to the hearing and trial process caused by online access? Good and bad. (Begins at 00:46 seconds)
  • There are certainly technical challenges with any online experience. What are some that are particular to online hearings and trials? (Begins at 4:54)
  • How about ethical issues? Approvals to host, rules of engagement? What do you have to consider and how do you ensure everyone is behaving appropriately? (Begins at 8:42) 
  • Does the non-legal prep work differ at all? If you are presenting at trial, It might be more like theatre in terms of delivery. But online is more like television. You have to worry about things like your background and lighting. I know people who take classes to learn about where to look at the camera and how to move. Things perhaps a broadcast journalist or social media influencer would learn (Begins at 12:56)
  • What is one funny experience you have had in an online hearing or trial? Any cat people? (Begins at 17:29)

The pandemic has brought about an opportunity for individuals to reflect on their lives, and most, in fact 77% of the legal professionals want to retain elements of this new virtual, remote working - to varying degrees. And critically, 22% said they are likely to leave if their employers didn’t accommodate the new way they want to work.

In this podcast, we will briefly discuss differing perspectives on remote working, the benefits and drawbacks to individuals, firms and clients to remote working, the impact on collaboration and differences by subgroup, working patterns, before and during COVID-19 and desired post-pandemic and which roles should remote working be available to, plus with or without restrictions.

We will also understand where you fit in and how you can maximize your own and your teams’ productivity as we progress into a new world of work with mixtures of both distributed and in person teams.
