PS&H partner Paul Kessimian contributes his knowledge and insight in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island’s first Virtual Litigation Academy video titled, How to Conduct a Bench Trial via Zoom.

In the video, Mr. Kessimian and other practitioners and court personnel discuss the technical and logistical aspects of preparing for a court appearance via zoom, including the preparation of witness. Then, there is a mock examination of witnesses (both cross and direct exam) before Judge William E. Smith of the U.S. District Court. Lastly, a panel of experts—including Judge Smith, Chief Judge John J. McConnell of the U.S. District Court, and Judge Brian P. Stern of the Rhode Island Superior Court—discuss their views on trial proceedings conducted via Zoom.
