The class action landscape continued to evolve dramatically in 2016 and 2017.

For those who dedicate their practice to class actions, whether plaintiff or defense, there is much to review and discuss from the past year. This program 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 changing trends in current class action practice.
