I got an email the other day about LSI’s 5th Annual Litigating Class Actions conference.  I’ve been to this seminar in the past and thought it was very well done.  I can’t make it this year, but for anyone interested I thought I’d pass along the details:

Litigating Class Actions – 5th Annual Conference
May 7 & 8, 2009
Seattle, WA (Renaissance Seattle Hotel)

Class actions dominate the litigation landscape and our Fifth Annual Conference on Litigating Class Actions will look at today’s “hot issues”, including consumer class actions from the plaintiff’s and defendant’s perspectives and significant court decisions and trends. Hear how you should assess matters for prefiling; litigating class actions between certifica tion and trial; the use of experts; considerations for labor and employment class actions; trial strategies and approaches; avoiding ethical traps; views from the bench on problematic issues; and more.

    The loyal reader will note that ClassActionBlawg covers class action trends in other parts of the world, including Canada.  But since I live about 1000 miles (or 1609.344 km) from Canada, and certainly have no license to practice law there, you have to take anything I say about trends in Canadian law with a huge grain of salt. 

    Not so with Ward Branch’s aptly named blog Class Actions in Canada.  If you want to get an insider’s view of class action news, legislation, decisions, and trends across the border, be sure check it out:
