WATCH: What is the New Normal in the Courts?

With Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget McCormack

Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget McCormack discusses the profound and rapid change in the court system in 2020 and as we move forward in 2021, and beyond. The impact of routine hearings, pre-trial and oral arguments, jury selection and the overall ability of the public to access justice are all timely topics in this virtual era.

Chief Justice McCormack also discusses the pros and cons of conducting business over Zoom and how a hybrid model of virtual and in-person business is currently conducted in district, probate, circuit, the court of appeals and the state supreme courts. She also touches on the current impact of family law when children are involved, and their positive interaction with the court system in a virtual setting.

Lastly, Justice McCormack introduces us to her monthly Lady Justice: Women of the Court podcast, as the collaborates with three colleagues from around the county, presenting a wide range of topics that appeal to all audiences. Lady Justice: Women of the Court focuses on the nation’s state courts. That is where the vast majority of cases, more than 90 percent, are heard. If they are appealed, state courts often serve as the final arbiters on the issues that are raised.

The justices hope listeners will get to know them as people outside of the courtroom.
