On Friday, January 18, 2008, Southwestern Law School will present a symposium entitled, Perspectives on Asbestos Litigation.  Scheduled speakers and moderators include Judge Barbara Jacobs Rothstein (Federal Judicial Center, Director); Justice Helen Freedman (N.Y. Supreme Court); Deans Bryant Garth (Southwestern) and Gregory Keating (USC); Professors Ronald Aronovsky (Southwestern), Anita Bernstein (Brooklyn), Alan Calnan (Southwestern), Howard Erichson (Fordham (Visiting) & Seton Hall), James Fischer (Southwestern), Mark Geistfeld (NYU),  Michael Green (Wake Forest), Deborah Hensler (Stanford), Keith Hylton (Boston U.), Francis McGovern (Duke), Linda Mullenix (Texas), Richard Nagareda (Vanderbilt), David Owen (South Carolina), Joseph Sanders (Houston), Judy Sloan (Southwestern), and Neil Vidmar (Duke); and distinguished practitioners Marh Behrens (Shook, Hardy) and Steven Kazan (Kazan, McClain).

Professor Alan Calnan and I are serving as co-chairs for the conference, and I will also moderate a panel on Public and Private Law Perspectives.  The Southwestern University Law Review will subsequently publish an issue based on the symposium.  Hope you can join us for what promises to be an interesting and informative day.
