The webinar was filled with resources for organizations working to redefine how they do legal work online. A Remote work guide by Probono,net – highlight how 10 org work with clients remotely. The Management Information Exchange has a Covid-19 Remote work polices and sample management documents page with 30+ articles and policies

The webinar was also filled with free & low cost tools:

We also had practical tech tips like how to block your number when calling clients.

To block your number for a specific call:

  1. Enter *67.
  2. Enter the number you wish to call (including area code).

Tap Call. The words “Private,” “Anonymous,” will appear on the recipient's phone instead of your number.Visibility
