This year’s DRI Product Liability Conference is worth checking out. It’s entitled “The Masters of Products: The Stars Come Out to Shine.” The conference will take place April 7-9, 2010 at The Venetian in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to all that Vegas has to offer, the seminar promises a jackpot of 18.5 hours of outstanding CLE, including 2 hours of ethics credit.
The main program features presentations by judges, academics, and government officials, including Hon. Inez Moore Tenenbaum, Chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission; Prof. Steven Gensler, Professor at the University of Oklahoma College of Law; Honorable Lee H. Rosenthal, United States District Court, Southern District of Texas; in-house counsel experienced in managing global product liability litigation, the trial of difficult cases including wrongful death and class actions, the use of demonstrative evidence and other trial tactics in product liability litigation, the new CPSIA and the reporting database, and the art of storytelling as a trial lawyer.
Break-out sessions are held by each of the 18 Specialized Litigation Groups (SLGs), (your humble author is Chair of the Mass Tort and Class Action SLG), so you can hone your skills in specific areas. And of course, the program will be attended by in-house and outside counsel from around the country, with ample opportunities to meet, greet and network. You won’t want what you learn in Vegas to stay in Vegas.
