Last week I gave a lecture to more than 800 fellow New York personal injury lawyers by Zoom. The hour-long lecture (followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer period) was titled, “How to Defeat the Governmental Immunity Defense”. You can watch a short clip from my lecture here, or you can, if you are a lawyer interested in this area of the law, watch the entire presentation here.
I used power point to guide my audience through the relevant case law and the “do’s and don’ts” of defeating the defense. Thanks to my legal assistant Becky, the accompanying power point presentation was attractive, informative, and well received.
The lecture was by zoom rather than in person because of COVID. I really missed delivering to a live audience. But the advantage was that I got in front of 800 lawyers from all over the State in real time in the same hour. Usually, I’ve got to travel around the State to deliver to rooms of a few hundred at a time.
