A New Legal Reality

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 2, 2020


By Michael Lee            2020 SCCBA President


Take care of yourself. Take care of your family. Be a support to your friends. Have hope in the future.


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the SCCBA, like many of you, is in crisis. We make most of our money through membership dues, special events (all of which are face to face) and CLE seminars. As we shelter-in-place, a major source of income for our organization has disappeared – with no clear alternative – for months on end. In this new reality, lawyers are unable to meet new clients. Courts are closed and work has stopped or slowed in almost every part of the legal system.


The SCCBA has responded through reduced work hours, telephonic meetings, a Zoom Pro account, and an upcoming online CLE where judges will tell you about how the Courts are coping, and how it affects the practice of law in our county. Please reach out to us if you think there is anything else we can do for you and for the legal community. Please reach out to us if there is anything you can do for us as a bar association. Please reach out to each other when you are able to lend a helping hand. This is a time of crisis. It is also a time of opportunity.


Stay well.
