Resource Details: The COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing protocols have forced legal aid offices and medical-legal partnerships to deliver legal services remotely. Panelists, at this town hall, addressed a number of the challenges presented by telelegal work, including collaborating with partners at a distance, meeting with patient-clients remotely, communicating with patient-clients who have limited access to technology, dealing with court and agency closures, signing and notarizing documents electronically, and planning for the medium- and long-term legal consequences of the pandemic.
