Upcoming DRI Drug and Medical Device Seminar in New Orleans on May 10-11, 2012

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.

Because I do defense work, last week I received the Defense Research Institute's mailer about this year's Drug and Medical Device Conference in New Orleans on May 10-11, 2012.  It has been quite a few years since I attended this conference (I last went to it in 2005 when it was in New York...a good time), but it is a must-attend if you defend drug and medical device manufacturers and distributors. 

All the details for the conference, including a brochure of the agenda, registration, etc., can be found here.  A cut and paste of the information from DRI's website follows:

DRI’s Drug and Medical Device Seminar is the preeminent program for lawyers who represent pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. We are pleased to feature a number of nationally recognized judges, attorneys (both in-house and outside counsel), and other professionals who will address cutting-edge topics that are relevant to all who practice in this area, whether they are associates, lead trial counsel, or in-house attorneys. This year’s program will offer a variety of presentations, including trial skills demonstrations, panel discussions of judges overseeing coordinated pharmaceutical proceedings, and litigation insights from leading defenders of drug and device cases. In addition to the outstanding program, there will be numerous networking opportunities, including our annual Young Lawyers Blockbuster. Be sure to register now to reserve your place in New Orleans at DRI’s 28th annual Drug and Medical Device Seminar.
