Sadly, the news is official: the United States now has more confirmed coronavirus cases than any other nation. As states and municipalities work furiously to slow the spread, developments and new guidance are being issued at a breakneck pace. The pandemic has had an impact on everyone, attorneys included. Courts have closed, CLE requirements have changed, and seemingly overnight, almost all of us have been forced to shift to remote work operations. The rapid speed by which everything is happening may have left you in a headspin and wondering how to keep track of everything you need to know. To that end, Lawline has created a list of helpful resources for attorneys looking to keep track of the most important changes to date.
