About the Seminar
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.
