Third in the series of AAJ Education's recently launched plaintiff-only Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Ligation Update seminars with a program on May 29 in conjunction with the May JPML hearing scheduled  in Louisville, KY. This program will be filled with member resources including case strategies, education, and networking opportunities. Be sure to join the faculty and program participants for a networking reception on May 28.

“The program was excellently organized, not one moment wasted. The speakers had their stuff ready, and as an attendee, all one needed to do was absorb the materials and make a plan for my cases. It was also beneficial to meet the faculty and other plaintiff trial lawyers at the reception. A well-planned, concise program, well worth the money and effort.”

William D. Cook, Eagle River, AK, 43 years in practice

Open only to AAJ Plaintiff Members (Regular, Life, Sustaining, President’s Club, and Leaders Forum) and AAJ Paralegal Affiliates.
