On July 23, the CBCA hosted five panel discussions by video to provide practitioners information about practicing virtually before the CBCA. Discussion topics included the CBCA's virtual protocol, the future of virtual practice at the CBCA, participating effectively in virtual proceedings, lessons learned from virtual proceedings, and running a dynamic virtual law clerk program. Over 160 people watched the panel discussions. The panelists included CBCA judges, a CBCA attorney, and CBCA law clerks. Shown here participating in one of the panel discussions are Judge Sheridan (top right), Tara Mehrbach (CBCA attorney - bottom left), Matthew Lewis (CBCA full-time law clerk - bottom middle), and Judge Somers (bottom right)).
