This is a must-attend annual OsgoodePD program, featuring a truly national faculty of leading class actions practitioners on the forefront of today’s hot button issues. They will critically examine and guide you through the many complexities of class actions litigation.

Class actions are still booming with a never-ending list of high profile new cases. These complex litigation files continue to foster old and new challenges for those professionals who must be on top of their game to succeed. Perennial issues include the latest procedural trends and fees and costs, with new questions arising around global class actions, fees in mega-fund cases and more, including:

  • The latest in third-party funding
  • Managing a class action from the perspective of: insurer, funder and in-house counsel
  • Post-settlement litigation: the devil’s in the details
  • Back to the drawing board on class action reform – what to expect this time around
  • The very latest on offers to settlement – from structure to merits to costs
  • Lawyers under attack – what goes around comes around
  • Top tips on settlement drafting

Over two intensive days, you will get the key updates on the most critical current and emerging issues and have the opportunity to connect with your colleagues and learn from experienced litigators and judges as they share their experiences and insights.
