DRI Young Lawyers Webinar: Preemption in Drug and Medical Device Cases: An Overview and Hot Topics

Federal preemption is a key defense in drug and medical device product liability cases, and the FDA’s regulatory framework is the ever-present background factor for our clients and for litigation involving their products. This webinar will provide a brief introduction to federal preemption, aimed at newer lawyers, before shifting to a robust discussion of strategically raising preemption defenses, and will conclude with a forecast of where federal preemption is headed, particularly given the impending changes to the FDA’s 510(k) clearance program.
