This course will undertake an in-depth examination of special issues arising in the context of complex civil litigation, with emphasis on business and commercial disputes and mass tort proceedings.

Among the topics to be considered are joinder of parties, intervention, duplicative or related litigation, transfer of cases, forum non conveniens, maintenance and defense of class actions, electronic discovery, document destruction issues, assertion and waiver of privilege, claim and issue preclusion, and alternate dispute resolution techniques. Students will have an opportunity to enhance their advocacy skills by arguing motions based on the subject matter under study.
