Punitive Damages Conference at Charleston Law School

I had the pleasure of attending and participating last Friday, September 7, in the Charleston Law School conference, entitled, "Punitive Damages, Due Process, and Deterrence: The Debate After Philip Morris v. Williams."  The conference included top national experts on punitive damages, as well as counsel in Williams, and was very well attended, with likely upwards of two hundred people.   As Professor Michael Rustad of Suffolk Law School noted, if the conference is any indication of the trajectory of recently founded Charleston Law School, it will "rise like an arrow."

Look for the symposium issue from the Charleston Law Review, which will include publication of transcripts and articles from the conference.
