I’m very pleased to be chairing the ABA Section of Litigation’s Sixth Annual Regional CLE Program on Class Actions and Mass Torts this year.  The program will be held at the offices of the Bar Association of San Francisco.  Breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m., and the presentation begins at 8:45 a.m. on June 21, 2019.

This year’s program will kick off with a panel discussing the recent amendments to Rule 23 as well as the Procedural Guidance for Class Action Settlements issued by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.  Other topics include the use of virtual law firms in class action and mass tort litigation, developments in injury-in-fact and Article III standing, and developments in how courts are dealing with variations in injury and causation in addressing the predominance factor in Rule 23(b).

I’ll be speaking at a data breach and privacy litigation conference on February 11, 2016 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom, 465 California Street, San Francisco.  The program is sponsored by HB Litigation Conferences and features an all-star faculty (present company excluded) of plaintiffs’ and defense litigators, insurers, settlement administrators, coverage lawyers, and other key stakeholders in this exciting and emerging area of the law.  For more information about this can’t-miss program, see the link below.  Hope to see you there!

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.
