Hi Everyone! I am happy to announce that my home institution has organized the inaugural Miami Class Action and Complex Litigation Forum, scheduled for  December 2, 2016 - only 2 weeks away!  This is a great event for to those interested in mass tort and similarly complex litigation.

The program contains federal judges who handle the largest MDL cases, members of the MDL Panel, the President of the National Association of Attorneys Generals and 14 of the top class action practitioners.  The organizers are trying to keep the attendance to a select number this year so everyone can ask questions and enjoy an intimate cocktail reception, but they have a few slots still remaining.
