The American Bar Association’s Litigation Section hosts its Section Annual Conference once a year and like so many gatherings, it was on hold during COVID-19. So, it’s not surprising that this year’s meeting in Miami was the first conference many attendees had been to since the pandemic shutdowns. For those not familiar, the Section Annual is a premier gathering for litigators featuring elite professionals discussing trial work, strategies, and the latest innovations.
We had the opportunity to cover this pivotal event with a four-part series of podcasts (listed below). During our time with ABA Litigation Section, we discussed handling “the unexpected” during a trial, dealing with ransomware, and what to do after a cyber breach. In addition, we learned what it means to “serve at the pleasure of the President” with former U.S. Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey.
