DRI’s Product Liability Conference is the premier event for attorneys, corporate counsel, and claims professionals who handle product liability cases. Join colleagues and friends at the luxurious Arizona Biltmore for a conference featuring knowledgeable speakers from inside the White House, the South Carolina Court of Appeals, America’s top law schools and product manufacturers, as well as top-tier trial lawyers as they discuss cutting-edge issues in product liability law. Find out what new cases and trends in the law will shape product liability litigation in the years to come, how to communicate quickly and effectively on behalf of a client involved in a crisis, where to score invaluable points while cross-examining an expert witness, and how to counteract the effects of the “reptile theory.”
