Then register now to join the NCAJ Products Liability, Class Action and Mass Torts Section on Friday, Jan. 20 at 1 p.m. for our virtual, half-day CLE — Keys for Unlocking a Successful Mass Torts or Products Liability Practice.

Our speakers will show you ways to leverage N.C. law to gain jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants, provide a primer on emerging litigation involving different types of chemical exposure, teach you how to get the most out of our state’s unfair and deceptive trade practices act, and perhaps most importantly, help you avoid the myriad ethical pitfalls that can arise in class actions and mass torts.
