Task Force on Advocacy in the 21st Century

The purpose of the Task Force on Advocacy in the 21st Century is to develop (and, pending further input from the Executive Committee, make available) the College's expertise on the issues that will confront the administration of justice in a post-Pandemic world, in particular those issues that impact the discovery component and trial of civil and criminal cases and oral arguments before appellate courts.
