CLC Conference -- Mass-Tort MDL Flash Points: Challenges for Next Generation of Transferee MDL Judges

The George Washington University Law School's James F. Humphreys Complex Litigation Center (CLC)

CLE Conference Credit: CLE will be applied for in New Jersey. Attorneys will receive a “Certificate of Attendance” and a completed “Uniform Application for Accreditation” form after the conference in order to submit CLE hours for your state.
Join the James F. Humphreys Complex Litigation Center for a historic, invitation-only conference with 50 federal judges and 100 plaintiff and defense lawyers at GW Law. No conference held by the government or academic or other institution brings together so many federal judges and practicing lawyers to focus on a single litigation issue of national importance.

This conference will help shape the decision-making of the new generation of MDL transferee judges, arming them with information about how they can most effectively and fairly manage these actions, informed by the wisdom of experienced MDL judges, practicing counsel, and learned scholars.
