For those of you who plan to attend the 2007 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools in Washington, D.C., several sessions hold particular interest for those who follow mass torts and other complex litigation:
I'll be speaking on Ethics in Class Action Litigation (Jan. 6), along with Amanda Frost, Alexandra Lahav, and Nancy Moore, in a program co-sponsored by the Sections on Civil Procedure and Professional Responsibility, moderated by Andrew Perlman.
The Workshop on Remedies (Jan. 3) includes sessions on Creative Remedies in Big Cases, The 9/11 Fund, Reparations for Massive and Ancient Wrongs, Aggregate Litigation Remedies, and the Political Debate Over Tort Remedies, and features a number of mass tort experts including Elizabeth Cabraser, Kenneth Feinberg, Deborah Hensler, Samuel Issacharoff, Burt Neuborne, Robert Rabin, Judith Resnik, William Rubenstein, Anthony Sebok, and Catherine Sharkey.
The Civil Procedure Section's program on The Politics of Class Actions (Jan. 4) is moderated by Margaret Woo, and includes defense lawyer John Beisner, plaintiffs' lawyer Elizabeth Cabraser, and professors Samuel Issacharoff and Linda Mullenix.
The Torts Section is running a program on European Union Tort Law (Jan. 4), moderated by Michael Green.
Hope to see many of you in D.C.
