Mass-Tort MDL Certificate & Advanced Certificate Program

November 9, 2020

Online this fall!

Duke Law School’s Mass-Tort MDL Certificate Program provides a unique opportunity to gain practical insight, network with key players, and advance your ability to take on leadership roles in multidistrict litigation. The certificate course, originally postponed due to the pandemic, will be held as a live interactive webcast on Monday, November 9, 2020. In addition, the Advanced Certificate will be offered virtually with additional coursework on Tuesday, November 10, 2020.

Established in 2019 by the late Duke Law Professor Francis McGovern, the program carries on his legacy with the involvement of many leading MDL practitioners and judges, including Elizabeth Cabraser, founding partner of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP and lecturer at Berkley Law, Paul Geller, managing partner of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s Boca Raton office, Chris Seeger, founding partner of Seeger Weiss, and Hon. Vaughn Walker, arbitrator, mediator, special discovery master, and former U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of California.
