AAJ Education is holding a plaintiff-only seminar on May 27–28 in Chicago, Illinois to cover the latest trends and topics in litigation, including the recent GM automobile recall, testosterone therapy, Risperdal, and several other pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

The Plaintiff-Only Hot Topics and Trends in Litigation Seminar kicks off on May 27 with afternoon business meetings with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Litigation Group from 2:30 - 4:00 pm, Testosterone Therapy Litigation Group from 4:00 - 5:00 pm, and Transvaginal Mesh Litigation Group from 5:00 - 6:00 pm. An evening networking reception from 6:00 - 8:00 pm provides you an opportunity to meet fellow trial lawyers from across the country and expand your referral network.

During the full day seminar on May 28, a faculty of carefully selected trial lawyers will share their insights on the latest trends in plaintiff litigation. In addition to the General Motors recall of 1.6 million vehicles believed to have faulty ignitions, faculty will discuss Risperdal, Lipitor, Transvaginal Mesh, Testosterone Therapy, and Cochlear Implants.

If you represent individuals affected by any of these or are simply interested in the litigation, this seminar is indispensable. In order to ensure that all information shared at this seminar remains strictly plaintiff-only, it is open only to AAJ voting members.

"It was a great networking opportunity.  It was also a great chance to get educated by some true experts who are passionate about obtaining justice for their clients.  This helps me to grow my practice by having the knowledge to properly screen cases and recognize cases."
––Kathy A. Brown, Charleston, WV, 12 years in practice

Open only to AAJ Plaintiff Members (Regular, Life, Sustaining, President’s Club, and Leaders Forum) and AAJ Paralegal Affiliates.
