Join your colleagues on Friday, October 3 at the SC Bar Conference Center, at satellite locations in Greenville, Charleston, Myrtle Beach and Rock Hill, or by individual webcast for a fast-paced and practical update on business torts litigation in South Carolina and beyond.
Course Planner Molly Hamilton Cawley has recruited an outstanding and experienced faculty of business litigation practitioners who will update you on key business tort causes of action, elements, defenses, damages, and trial practice and procedure. This powerful program will feature coverage of employment-related torts, intentional and negligent misrepresentation, fiduciary duties/shareholder disputes, tortious interference with contractual relations, and emerging business tort trends both here and around the country. There will also be a special presentation on business valuations and damages issues, as well as an introduction to South Carolina’s new Fast Track Jury Trial system by Brad Waring. Finally, Professor John Freeman will provide you with a sobering dose of ethical reality with a reprise of his popular “Business Lawyer Horror Stories.”
Whether you are a novice or experienced business litigator, corporate or employment law practitioner, or in-house counsel, this is a program you can’t afford to miss! So register by September 19 and take advantage of our Early Bird Registration price!
