Working Remotely Webinar

An Introduction to Remote Working for Lawyers webinar with Craig Zawada, Q.C.

While working remotely is not new, the disruption caused by the current Covid-19 pandemic is forcing many businesses, including lawyers, to deliver client service from outside the office. If you are wondering how to maintain your practice in a time of social isolation, this session can start you down the path of delivering your work product remotely.

This webinar, hosted by Craig Zawada, Q.C., will review the essentials to perform some or all of your work from outside the workplace. Topics include:

  • Basic equipment and software needed
  • Video meeting tools
  • Using the Cloud for file access and email
  • Group collaboration software
  • Digital signing of documents
  • Practicing securely and safely, including avoiding malware, password protection basics, and virtual private networks

This is aimed at beginners to the remote game and avoids jargon and complex computer terms. However, users of all experience levels can learn about alternatives for hardware and software which will help meet client needs during this unprecedented disruption to normal workflow.
