It’s probably safe to say at this point that 2020 has been a year of complete transformation for just about everyone on the planet! There’s no question that the pandemic has created pandemonium in the deposition world. What we do and how we do it was thrown for a loop on pretty much a moment’s notice. This session will explore the seismic shift in the deposition landscape through 3 different lenses: that of court reporting agencies, court reporters themselves and our litigation clients. Join us for this interesting exploration of resilience in action!

ZOOM 101 (.1 CEU)

Gene Miller, Trial & Media Services Manager, Realtime Systems Administrator, Alaris Litigation Services & Alaris Trial Services - St. Louis, MO

Videoconferencing technology has been around from decades, but it wasn’t until Covid-19 hit the scene that requests from litigators reached a fever pitch and Zoom emerged as the VC platform leader. Zoom was designed to be user-friendly, but connection issues and incorrect settings can gum up the flow of a videoconference deposition. Tune in to this session for some simple tips that will help you – and your clients – enjoy a smooth Zoom experience.
