March 26, 2020 – Practising Law Institute (PLI) is pleased to provide programming at no cost to the legal community, covering legal developments related to the global coronavirus crisis.
Current program topics include diverse offerings ranging from the cyber-risks of working from home in light of COVID-19, to the virus's impact on the current shareholder activism environment, to housing and worker justice during COVID-19, to how to manage the mindset of your team and clients, and much more. Programming continues to expand and will be added to the current offerings available at www.pli.edu/coronavirus. These Hot-Topic Briefings are live audio webcasts, which are then made available on-demand to those unable to participate live. PLI is also continuously monitoring the many changing MCLE rules by state regulators and informing our Members about those changes.
