CLE - MDLs From the Plaintiff, Defense, and Judicial Perspectives

Monday, April 25, 2016 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Multidistrict litigation involves not just practices and considerations that are unique to itself, as compared to other areas of litigation, but it also offers unique opportunities to lawyers in many non-litigation fields. The presenting attorneys from some of Massachusetts top Plaintiff and Defense Firms will bring their perspectives and experiences in describing MDLs from beginning to end.  In addition, Judges Saylor and Woodlock have graciously agreed to offer their perspectives from behind the bench. 

During this program, the panelists will also discuss 28 USC  §1407, 28 USC  §1441, and the Manual for Complex Litigation.

If you have ever wanted to know more about MDLs, how you may get involved in this fascinating and often complex area of the law or if you would like to learn more about how your practice could benefit from understanding this law, this is your opportunity!
