COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on the practice of law. Attorneys in the county had had to learn how to practice law in a totally different and unique way. The OCBA has been working hard during this pandemic to keep our members updated and connected to the courts.  As the legal profession transitions back out of the pandemic, join the OCBA to receive help and information on how to adapt again.
