Upcoming DRI Products Liability Conference in April

I am happy to post information about legal conferences pertaining to products liability issues. I always try 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 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside in New Orleans, Louisiana this year from Wednesday, April 6 through Friday, April 8, 2011. This is a great conference. I went to the one last year that was in Las Vegas. and I am attending this year's conference. In fact, I will be presenting on Thursday at one of the Specialized Litigation Group ("SLG") breakout sessions. I joined the "Agricultural/Construction/Mining/Industrial Equipment" ("ACMIE") SLG last year, and this year I am doing a presentation entitled "Who Needs Letterman? The Annual ACMIE Top 10 Cases." As the title suggests, the presentation is basically a survey of significant cases in 2010 that involved ACMIE products and equipment (and if you know of a case that I should consider for inclusion, please comment so that I can get in touch and discuss it with you).

All the details for the conference, including a brochure of the agenda, registration, etc., can be found here. I look forward to meeting anyone who plans to be there.
