Extract from Zach Warren’s article “The Legalweek New York Judges’ Keynote Is Back—With a Twist”
The annual Legalweek New York judge’s keynote is back, taking place the morning of Feb. 3, 2022. But this time, there’s a twist.
Normally a panel presentation, this year’s keynote will adopt a debate format, pitting some of the nation’s leading jurists against one another in debating current discovery positions and applicable attorney ethics topics. The judges will be given thought-provoking hypotheticals, and each judicial advocate will be asked to take a position, which may not necessarily align with actual rulings.
Following the debate, the live LWNY audience will have a chance to get involved, turning the tables on the jurists and making their own ruling. Audience members will be asked for their ruling using Legalweek’s polling technology, which will be revealed live at the show.
