Free MCLE w/appellate stars

Want 5.75 MCLE hours for free, listening to the likes of Kathleen SullivanTed Boutrous, and Michael Mukasey? Then head to Pepperdine's Mendenhall Appellate Courtroom on Sept. 19 at 8:30 a.m. for a symposium co-sponsored by the US Chamber Institute for Legal Reform on.... Transnational Forum Shopping. (?!?) Yes, come see:
prominent academics, legal practitioners, and business leaders to discuss three key issues in transnational litigation: (1) the future of Alien Tort Statute litigation after Kiobel, (2) the need for federal legislation governing the recognition of judgments rendered in foreign countries, and (3) global forum shopping. The symposium will close with a fourth panel focused on strategic business planning in light of the preceding topics.
Not really appellate issues, but if this floats your boat, click here to register.

A place for transnational shopping?
