Dexter Hamilton will be moderating a webcast for the Federal Courts Committee. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many U.S. courts (state and federal) are adjusting the way they operate.  Each court is making its own modifications under the circumstances and have included, among other things: courthouse closures, restricted courthouse access, as well as, processes and procedures relating trials, mediations and technologies for cases and arguments.


This program will address the following topics:

  • COVID-19 related orders and directives from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the Eastern District, and the U. S. Administrative Office of the Courts
  • Practical thoughts and comments for dealing with federal judges during the COVID-19 crisis
  • U.S, Magistrate Rule 16 conferences, settlement conferences, and mediations during the COVID-19 crisis
  • U.S. District Court Clerk Rules, tips, and recommendations for dealing with the Clerk’s Office during the COVID-19 crisis
