As this summer comes to a close, many of our readers are no doubt making plans for the fall. If those plans include learning about the latest in class actions, you should keep reading the blog, of course! But you might also wish to consider attending this year’s annual Class Actions Conference (organized by CLE International). I am surely biased in making the recommendation, as I am co-chairing the conference with Lisa Mezzetti of Cohen Milstein, the well-known plaintiffs’ firm.

The conference, which will take place on October 3 and 4 in Washington, DC, promises to be interesting. It will focus on the Supreme Court’s past term, in which six class-action cases were decided. Nearly all of the speakers were heavily involved with those cases, representing either the parties or key amici. And all of our speakers are leaders in the arena of class-action litigation. As a result, the conference will be valuable to all class-action practitioners—including plaintiffs’ lawyers, defense counsel, and in-house lawyers.

The conference brochure is available here (pdf). Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you’d like more information. I hope to see many of our readers in October!
