I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
We are living through an unprecedented time in modern history, one that has changed the way we live our lives, practice law, and interact with our families, friends, and colleagues. Over the past six weeks, the Federal Bar Foundation has responded and funded several timely and essential programs for our members and the greater Second Circuit legal community:
- CLE programming addressing COVID-19 in the federal prison system and cyber hygiene “best practices” for lawyers working remotely during this time;
- Additional on-demand online CLE programming to assist lawyers in keeping current with CLE requirements during this time, including programs in development that will aid lawyers as they navigate court systems during the COVID-imposed changes in court operations;
- Development of online digital learning resources about Law Day and the 19th Amendment for schools in greater New York City area, in order to keep alive the Circuit’s annual Law Day civic education activities.
I know there are many worthy causes in need of your contribution on this #GivingTuesdayNow. Please consider including the Federal Bar Foundation in your giving plans so we can continue this important programming.
