2020 Class Action Litigation Conference - Los Angeles


Bridgeport’s Annual Class Action Conference explores and explains the changing landscape of class actions.  Because the world of class action litigation is always changing, Corporate Counsel and Civil litigators who practice in this area are aware that there have been significant developments both in the practice and the law, both Nationally and in California. Plaintiff and defense attorneys and in-house counsel need to be up to date on the changes involving class action legislation, certification, procedure, presentation, arbitration, settlements and more. The 2020 Conference will take a careful look at the most litigated issues facing practitioners today and going forward. This conference is chaired by Bethany W.
