    Come celebrate Rule 23’s fiftieth anniversary with Judge Richard Posner, Professor Arthur Miller, Professor John Coffee, and other class-action luminaries. Because this time what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas!

    Rule 23 is fifty years old, and the Supreme Court is mired in uncertainty. The class-action landscape has tightened dramatically, and it is more essential than ever to stay atop the most-current class-action jurisprudence and developments, lest your practice wither from the changes. So please join us at this year’s National Institute on Class Action which will feature a top-level faculty who will teach us what we need to preserve our class-action practice.

    Join us to experience such topics as:

    • A conversation on Rule 23 with Judge Richard Posner;
    • A review of the past year in class-action jurisprudence with Professors John Coffee and Alexandra Lahav;
    • A retrospective on the purpose and history of Rule 23 with Professor Arthur Miller;
    • behind-the-scenes look at how MDL transferee judges are trained and how they manage MDLs with former FJC chair, Judge Barbara Rothstein;
    • A discussion of Rule 23’s future, in light of its changes and current trends;
    • How to manage choice-of-law issues when involved in multistate consumer class-action cases; and
    • How to do class actions right, recognizing the public's perception that class actions are a joke, only plaintiffs' and defense lawyers prosper, and notices are intended to deceive rather than inform
