After returning from a week of travel for work, I wanted to post a quick comment about the 4th Annual Class Action Symposium presented by Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. After speaking at the Symposium, I can now say quite confidently that it contains top-tier material for class action practitioners. Almost any class action practitioner will benefit in some way. I regret that I could not attend the second day of the Symposium because of my travel schedule. Make a mental note to attend the Symposium next year. You will be glad you attended this Symposium, and not one targeted at a more basic level of experience.
A combination of being buried at work and precious few appellate decisions filled with class action gold have made things a little slow around here. But now I've got something for you. The Consumer Attorneys of San Diego are presenting their 4th Annual Class Action Symposium on Friday, October 14, 2011 and Saturday, October 15, 2011, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, 1 Park Blvd.
The Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel is the newest waterfront hotel located directly adjacent to the Padre Stadium and a short walk from downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter and East Village.
Good for 10.0 General Credits and 1.0 Ethics MCLE Credit, the Symposium will include an impressive lineup of speakers. The panel speakers will address topics such as: Class Arbitration, Dukes, Ticketmaster, and Damages and Equitable Relief, just to name a few. Featured speakers include: Arthur Bryant of Public Justice, the nation's leading lawyer on the issue of class wide arbitration, Judge Vaughn Walker (Ret.), whose creative legal mind will help navigate emerging complex cases and activist Harvey Rosenfield, founder of Consumer Watchdog, to put it all in perspective. I will be speaking there too, but you should sign up anyhow.
