If you’re interested in following international developments in class action law, there are a couple of upcoming ABA CLE programs that might be of interest. Unfortunately, the are both scheduled for the same weekend, so you’ll have to choose:
The 12th Annual National Institute on Class Actions is scheduled for November 7 at the New York Marriott Downtown Hotel. In addition to a variety of interesting topics including the impact of the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA), and developments in consumer class actions, the program will conclude with a panel discussion about the globalization of the class action marketplace.
That same weekend in the Biltmore Hotel in Miami, the ABA International Law section and International Bar Association are co-sponsoring a conference entitled The Next Big Wave in Cross-Border Litigation. The conference will kick off with a presentation on mass litigation in the developing world.
