The ABA Class Actions and Derivative Suits Committee is holding its annual National Institute on Class Actions on Friday, October 14, in New York City. This one-day seminar is chock full of timely and interesting presentations on the 2011 Supreme Court decisions (with a panel including lawyers who litigated Wal-Mart and Concepcion), the future of class action litigation, class action trials, objectors to class action settlements, and the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
I’ll be there. I hope to see some of you there — if you’re going please drop me a note. If you’re still considering attending, it’s not too late to sign up here. For those of you who can’t make it, you can expect to see my “takeaways” from it on my blog, probably the week after the seminar.
