Emergency COVID Court Measures Discussion Forum

The Advocates' Society is here to do what it can to help our members navigate the court system during the abrupt change in our legal environment and court procedures. The Society is participating in daily update calls with key justice system stakeholders and can seek answers to questions or solutions to problems.  Join the discussion here to share your experiences, ask your questions, or make suggestions.
