    The Tulane Law Review is holding the first national symposium on multidistrict litigation this upcoming February 15th and 16th, 2008. We are pleased that a number of speakers have agreed to join us, specifically Judge John Heyburn, the Chairman of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, and Judge Kathryn Vratil, also a member of the Panel. The symposium will feature several other distinguished federal and state judges who have handled MDL litigation, such as Judges Eldon Fallon (E.D. La.), Stanwood Duval (E.D. La.), Lee Rosenthal (S.D. Tex.), Sarah Vance (E.D. La.), Mark Davidson (Texas state), and Carol Higbee (New Jersey state); a number of highly respected academics, such as Profs. Francis McGovern (Duke), Richard Marcus (Hastings), Edward Sherman (Tulane), Alexandra Lahav (Connecticut), and Robin Effron (Chicago); and distinguished attorneys from both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ sides, including Richard Arsenault, Dawn Barrios, Judy Barrasso, Mark Herrmann, Russ Herman, Phillip Whitman, and Richard Scruggs. The symposium will cover a wide range of issues across the national landscape of multidistrict litigation, from the actual workings of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation and the selection of the transferee court, to the questions of coordination between simultaneous MDLs in both state and federal courts, the formation of ad hoc districtwide MDLs, the use of bellwether trials and other settlement devices, attorney strategies in multidistrict litigation, and the role of MDL in the solution to the problems of complex litigation.
