Jennifer Coatsworth Selected to Moderate on COVID-19’s Impact on the Legal Profession

We are proud of our partner, Jen Coatsworth, who was selected by the Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Lauren McKenna to moderate the latest Chancellor’s Forum “COVID-19’s Impact on the Legal Profession. The program featured a discussion of the report, Practicing Law in the Pandemic and Moving Forward: Results and Best Practices from a Nationwide Survey of the Legal Profession, which is the result of a survey of 4,200 American Bar Association members. It found that the need to work remotely during COVID-19 has caused high levels of stress and disengagement among lawyers, with these impacts disproportionately falling on women attorneys and attorneys of color. The panel discussion included potential solutions to the report’s findings.
