George Mason University’s Twelfth Annual Judicial Symposium on Civil Justice Issues

The US civil justice system is evolving rapidly. At both the federal and state levels, legislative and judicial actions are generating a wave of new innovative legal theories and procedural maneuvers. The Judicial Symposium on Civil Justice Issues serves to highlight recent developments and growing trends in civil litigation, and it provides an opportunity for judges to review, critique, and question contemporary issues in civil justice.

This year’s Symposium will tackle such hot issues as forum shopping in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2017 Bristol-Myers Squibb decision; the legal status of mandatory arbitration, class action waivers, and other such terms in employment agreements; and whether generic or brand manufacturers should be liable when patients are injured by generic drugs. The program will also feature a “Great Debate,” in which well-known legal scholars square off to argue whether global warming should be considered a public nuisance?
