Emory Institute for Complex Litigation Leadership Conference

Lori Cohen served on a panel titled "MDL Leadership" at the Emory Institute for Complex Litigation Leadership Conference on January 18, 2018. The panel tackled the difficult questions posed in Multidistrict Litigation ("MDL"), including the appropriate role for the judiciary in improving the diversity and inclusion in leadership on both sides of the aisle, the second-generation consequences (good and bad) of an explicit focus on diversity and inclusion in Plaintiffs' Steering Committee selection and shift from slates to individual appointments, and strategies for judges, in-house counsel and law firms in improving the pipeline of qualified attorneys in MDL.
