1. Connections for practice
    1. Is your virtual meeting capacity stretched? We are pleased to offer OBA Virtual Boardrooms for firm meetings, mediations, arbitrations, closings or client meetings. Email to book. It is free to members.
    2. Watch for a special edition of the OBA Innovation newsletter coming soon that will outline tools to help you:
      • Operate a remote telephone reception function so that clients can reach you as they always have;
      • Transfer large files to other members of your team, clients, opposing counsel and eventually courts and government bodies (we are working on it);
      • Verifying a client’s identity, sign documents and commission affidavits remotely in accordance with the special LSO guidelines;
    1. Stay connected with your fellow lawyers for advice, best practices and a little levity through:
      1. Your OBA Section Discussion Boards (visit, sign in, and find the discussion board for your practice area under "Sections")
      2. Our Linkedin group
      3. Follow @obalawyers on Twitter and join our more than 13,500 followers as we talk about happenings within the profession. Some of our favourite hashtags to follow are #lawtwitter, #legalinnovation and #womeninlaw. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram too.
      4. Sign up for our Mentorship program and make a new connection. New lawyers can keep growing their network while experienced lawyers can continue to give back to the profession, even during our collective social distancing efforts.
      5. Use our Member-to-Member directory and find a new contact in your practice area, referral pipeline, or community. The OBA is a warm and welcoming community of lawyers - send an email or pick up the phone and call one of your fellow members to chat.
