Upcoming DRI Products Liability Conference

I am happy to post information about legal conferences pertaining to products liability issues. As I stated at the beginning of this blog, I am trying to provide products liability information that is useful to the defense bar, plaintiff's bar, manufacturers, and individuals. Therefore, if anyone has a seminar or conference (regardless of whether it is defense or plaintiff-oriented), please pass it along and I will be happy to post the pertinent information.

The Defense Research Institute is holding their Products Liability Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada this year, and a colleague provided me with some information about it, which I have pasted below. I will be attending this conference and look forward to meeting anyone there.

Don’t gamble when it comes to Product Liability! This year’s DRI Product Liability Conference - The Masters of Products: The Stars Come Out to Shine is a sure bet. The conference will take place April 7-9, 2010 at The Venetian in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada.

In addition to all that Vegas has to offer, the seminar promises 18.5 hours of outstanding CLE, including 2 hours of ethics credit. The main program features presentations by Inez Moore Tenenbaum, Chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission; Steven Gensler, Professor at the University of Oklahoma College of Law; Honorable Lee H. Rosenthal, United States District Court, Southern District of Texas; outside and in-house counsel experienced in managing global product liability litigation, trial of difficult cases including wrongful death and class actions, the use of demonstrative evidence and other trial tactics in product liability litigation, the new CPSIA and the reporting database, and the art of storytelling as a trial lawyer.

The 18 Specialized Litigation Groups (SLGs) will conduct workshops where you can hone your skills in specific areas. And of course, the program will be attended by in-house and outside counsel from around the country, with ample opportunities to meet, greet and network.

Register for this seminar NOW on line, by logging on to or by printing the registration form on the back of the brochure and either fax or mail it in. You can also call DRI Customer Service at 312.795.1101 for more information.

We’ll see you in Las Vegas.
