The ninth installment debuts at 9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 a.m. PT, Thursday, Oct. 29. This installment, titled “COVID’s Impact on the Judiciary” will focus on how COVID-19 has affected the practice of law, especially the daily functions of the United States court system.

  • Honorable Rebecca Dallet (LAW ‘94), Justice, Wisconsin Supreme Court;
  • Honorable Michelle Earley (LAW ‘99), Presiding Judge, Cleveland Municipal Court; and
  • Honorable Edmund A. Sargus Jr. (LAW ‘78), Judge, United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio.
