For the 22st consecutive year, this seminar reviews every published and unpublished medical malpractice case and all relevant developments in New Jersey Medical Malpractice law during the last 12 months.

This seminar is moderated by Abbott Brown, Esq., Jon Lomurro, Esq. and Gary Riveles, Esq., (Co-authors of New Jersey Medical Malpractice Law (7th Ed. 2018), and includes a panel of plaintiffs and defense malpractice lawyers. This program is traditionally attended by a substantial number of the most experienced medical malpractice trial lawyers from both sides of the malpractice bar, who actively participate in the discussion. As such, this seminar provides a unique opportunity to engage in a discussion of every new malpractice case and development, as well as important policy issues.

The seminar is specifically intended to keep the faculty and attendees at the 'state of the art' in New Jersey Medical Malpractice law. There are no generic discussions that apply to litigation generally, such as how to take a deposition or file a motion in limine. This seminar is focused on all recent developments that matter to malpractice attorneys. As such, this program is the most valuable seminar of the year for New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys!
