On September 15, 2009, the Alameda County Bar Association will present its Advanced Seminar: Cutting-Edge Topics in Class Action Litigation. Registration begins at 4:30 and the program runs from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the offices of Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean, LLP, 1111 Broadway, 19th Floor in Oakland. The cost is just $30 for ACBA members, $40 for non-members.
This is a great program. It will feature both of the Alameda County complex litigation judges, Judge Robert Freedman and Judge Steven Brick, and their research attorneys, Philip Obbard and Walter Stemmler, as well as Judge David B. Flinn of Contra Costa County.
Two years ago, I live-blogged this seminar, and it was chock full of valuable insights from the judges and their research attorneys. Unfortunately, this year I have a scheduling conflict and won't be able to attend, but I encourage everyone who handles class actions in Alameda County to be there. If I'm able to arrange for someone else to live-blog the seminar in my place I will of course announce that here.
