Advanced Topics on The Camp Lejeune Justice Act
Join us for another NCAJ CLE in response to the passage of the PACT Act/Camp Lejeune Justice Act.
Program Chair Mona Lisa Wallace has gathered some of the state and nation’s top litigators for insights on the use of experts in these cases. You’ll hear from individuals with a depth of knowledge and experience in researching and litigating these matters that stretches back decades.
We’re excited to kick off the day with legislative insights from Linda Lipsen, CEO of the American Association for Justice. Over lunch, we’ll welcome nationally recognized leaders in the PACT Act/Camp Lejeune Justice Act efforts — Jerry Ensminger and Mike Partain — for a conversation on how we got here and what’s ahead for affected veterans and their families.
The access and perspectives you’ll gain from these top attorneys and experts will serve you and your clients well as you pursue justice for those who have already given so much to our nation.
