Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, Calif. 90071.  The conference will examine the class action landscape, which continued to evolve dramatically in 2013 and 2014, and promises more of the same in 2015. Arbitration, rigorous inquiry, nationwide class certification, marketing reliance, actual injury and market remedial actions are all issues that dominated class action orders and opinions.  Developments in economic product defect, market misrepresentation, privacy and pure omissions class actions impact most class action practitioners currently prosecuting or defending these cases.

This program, which is geared for the advanced practitioner, will cover the latest developments in the law of federal class actions as well as procedural advice from leaders in the field. This timely conference will include a discussion of the development of recent major class actions cases and decisions, as well as a look at upcoming cases and current practice.  Rob’s presentation will cover Article III Standing in Class Actions, and will take place from 2:15 -3:05 p.m. PST, Thursday, April 16.

CLE credit will be awarded for attendance at the conference.  Additional information and registration details may be found here.
