Platinum Level Sponsor: Counsel Financial

AAJ Education's next Plaintiff-Only Hot Topics and Trends in Litigation Seminar will be held on October 1, 2014 with a reception the evening of September 30, prior to the October Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) hearing scheduled in Louisville, KY. This program is designed to prepare trial lawyers representing plaintiffs in pharmaceuticals and medical device cases for the JPML hearing with the latest case strategies, updates, and networking opportunities.

Keynote speaker, Christopher A. Seeger of Seeger Weiss, will present on model MDL practices. Additional topics include Xarelto, testosterone therapy, and the General Motors ignition defect.

"It was a great networking opportunity.  It was also a great chance to get educated by some true experts who are passionate about obtaining justice for their clients.  This helps me to grow my practice by having the knowledge to properly screen cases and recognize cases."
––Kathy A. Brown, Charleston, WV, 12 years in practice

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