NEW YORK – The Seventh Annual Mass Torts Judicial Forum, led by Hon. Marina Corodemus (Ret.), will feature some of the nation’s leading ADR and legal Mass Torts voices. This year will mark the first year Judge Corodemus will preside over this prestigious event as a neutral with JAMS, the world's largest private arbitration and mediation provider. The one-day conference is on Monday, April 3 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
“It is a pleasure to preside over an event that will provide so much needed information covered by some of the most respected neutrals, judges and attorneys in the Mass Torts field,” said Judge Corodemus, who will serve as the program chair and will moderate the “Ethics in Mass Torts” session.
