ALI-ABA is sponsoring a conference on "Asbestos Litigation: Where Is It Going? When Will It End?" on December 4th-5th in San Antonio, Texas. The program description provides:
This advanced course of study examines the reevaluation of asbestos litigation that is taking place as a result of the backlash against screenings and developments in state tort law “reform.” The course comprises 12 hours of instruction, including one hour of ethics. There are a lot of asbestos conferences, but this one has the “first chair” players covering all aspects of this complex litigation. The faculty not only talks about ongoing developments, but also is in a position to suggest likely future developments in the litigation as well as in filings, medicine, bankruptcy, and insurance.
