Clifford Symposium "A Brave New World" focuses on litigation finance

The 19th annual Clifford Symposium on Tort Law & Social Policy will examine the issues of financing litigation. Twenty-two scholars including legal academics, social scientists and economists from the U.S. and Canada will present on topics ranging from the financial challenge of class relief to ethical issues in litigation finance.

The symposium, "A Brave New World: The Changing Face of Litigation and Law Firm Finance," was organized by Professor Stephan Landsman, the Robert A. Clifford Chair in Tort Law & Social Policy. The faculty chair and annual symposium are supported through an endowment established by Robert A. Clifford (JD '76) in 1994.

The symposium is free and open to the public, but space is limited. It will be held on April 18 and 19 at the DePaul Center, Room 8005, 1 E Jackson Blvd, Chicago. For more information and a complete schedule, please visit the event page.
