OBA Class Actions PROGRAM | 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

In this third installment of our “Fundamentals of Class Actions Law” series, hear from both sides of the table about the logistical and practical considerations in pleading your case. Whether you are a senior class action practitioner wishing to compare best practices, a new lawyer who is keen to practice in this active area, or in-house or government counsel seeking advice for mitigating the worst-case scenario on a day-to-day basis, you will benefit significantly from this comprehensive analysis of the pleadings stage and other pre-certification issues.

Join our highly experienced faculty as they share valuable insights on:

  • Forum, jurisdiction, and attornment
  • Identifying and naming defendants
  • Considerations for which causes of action to include
  • Claims for relief: damages, declarations
  • Timing and relevance of the statement of defence
  • Dealing with pleadings motions
  • Overlap and distinctions between common issues and pleadings
  • Pre-certification considerations for defendants

Don’t miss out on this insightful and valuable program!
