About USLAW Short Takes

USLAW’s Short Takes virtual video series includes 26 discussions on today’s hottest legal topics, forward-thinking initiatives and several areas that address the impact of COVID-19 and how we manage it for a daily work-life balance. In each of these brief video clips – each no more than 15 minutes – USLAW member attorneys and corporate partners lead conversations encompassing six key areas of focus:

  1. Litigation Trends Post COVID-19
  2. Corporate Trends Post COVID-19
  3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  4. Leadership, Management, and Succession
  5. Technology and Innovation
  6. Health and Wellness

Each overarching topic includes four to five discussions. Each video conversation is facilitated by Scott C. Carr, director of marketing and community relations at Klinedinst P.C., USLAW’s member firm in San Diego, California.

With a wide array of topics that cover HIPPA, ADA, regulation or de-regulation, tech innovations, gender diversity and inclusion in the workplace, cyber security, global supply chains, the infrastructure bill, law firm succession planning, today’s political landscape’s impact on juries, health privacy issues, and so much more, viewers will get a few key takeaways from each session.
