MDL at 50: The 50th Anniversary of Multidistrict Litigation

The Center on Civil Justice is excited to announce its first of two fall conferences, MDL at 50, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Multidistrict Litigation Statute. This conference is co-hosted by the Center on Civil Justice at NYU Law School and the Liman and Solomon Centers at Yale Law School. The topic of aggregate litigation is especially important in light of the many cases brought together under MDL and the shifting rules on the availability of class actions. This is an opportunity to take stock, by looking back on the history of MDL and its current impact. We will discuss what the goals of MDL have been and are, MDL's successes and challenges, and whether and how its processes can be improved.

Tierney, the former attorney general of Maine, and learn more about the role of states and the courts in the current federal agenda and explore the consequent impact on inclusive growth, sustainability, and equitable government systems.
