This year’s program was a departure from the typical structure by featuring an interactive workshop on a controversial mass claims issue – an oil spill – led by Deborah Greenspan, former Deputy Special Master for the September 11 Victims’ Compensation Fund Program. Other highlights included legal arguments on Economical Litigation Agreements and Third Party Financing before a “Mock Tribunal” of former judges and an Ethics panel that answered pre-submitted disclosure dilemmas and questions.
