New York Personal Injury Attorneys Rubinowitz and TorganThe trust and reliance that we place in those who make crucial decisions about our health and safety often goes unchallenged until something goes wrong.

New York Child sexual abuse lawyer Ben RubinowitzThe COVID crisis has dramatically altered the way courts conduct business, but any judge will tell you, with a sense of pride, that the courts never closed. How have courts – an institution notoriously slow to change – adapted to provide access to justice throughout a pandemic?

Our managing partner Ben Rubinowitz will be speaking at a conference hosted by The Center on Civil Justice at NYU Law School that will address these issues. The conference will take place online Monday January 11, 2021, from 12pm to 5pm.

The conference will examine the nature of the way courts change and adapt in general, what specific trial and pre-trial rules and procedures have changed (and how), and which of these changes can be used to improve efficiency and access to justice after the COVID crisis passes.
