I'm sure that you have experienced the stressfulness and uncertainty caused by the pandemic. The last two months have been difficult and there is no clear end to the adjustments we continue to make in our personal and professional lives.

In light of the disruption to the economy in general and to the profession specifically, the TBA and the TBA Foundation are taking action to help members. The TBA Foundation just approved a grant that allows the TBA to provide members with free access to all of the Association's live, video replay and live-interactive webinar CLE throughout the entire 2020-2021 bar year which starts July 1st!

Over the next week you will receive a membership renewal invoice. Please renew your membership and take full advantage of this special CLE benefit and the many other benefits of belonging to your local bar association.

With participation from more than 50,000 Ohio legal professionals, the results from last weeks Ohio Metro Bar Association Trial Advocacy Survey on opening courtrooms for jury trials are in.

While the duration and reach of the COVID-19 pandemic remains largely speculative, consensus within the Ohio legal community is that jury trials must proceed when (1) deemed essential; (2) they can be conducted in compliance with best medical practices; and (3) they are able to honor the fundamental rights of all parties to the judicial process.

You can read the results of the survey and recommendations presented to the Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice on the OMBAC Jury Trial Advisory Survey here.
