How has the coronavirus upended the legal profession? What happens when your right to a speedy trial clashes with the government’s cancellation of jury trials? Can an employer require workers deemed non-essential to show up, or face termination?

On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske talked with a panel of legal experts about a variety of issues, including those triggered by the new coronavirus.

Joining the discussion was:

  • Mark Smith, an associate vice chancellor and dean for career services at Washington University
  • Mary Anne Sedey, an attorney at St. Louis-based Sedey Harper Westhoff P.C. who specializes in employment issues
  • Nicole Gorovsky, a local attorney in practice at Gorovsky Law, LLC
