The American Association for Justice, né the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, is sponsoring a daylong program in New York today: Pharma and Beyond: Litigation Today with Special Guest Mark Lanier.

Taking lessons learned from going up against big pharma, this one-day program will offer unique insights beneficial to all plaintiff lawyers. Special guest Mark Lanier will be joined by an outstanding faculty of trial lawyers and consultants who will share with you the insights, techniques, and strategies they developed in handling landmark pharmaceutical cases. This seminar is designed to teach you how to take these valuable tools and apply them to every type of case you handle.

Cost of the seminar: $695. Now which client can we bill this to?

Guest speaker is Harold Ford Jr., the former Tennessee congressman and now head of the Democratic Leadership Council, the self-styled moderate/center group. You know what would be gutsy, in a moderate/center kind of way? Telling the audience that tort reform is necessary to help rein in medical costs and restore true accountability to our system of civil litigation.

P.S. Lanier’s law firm website is here. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog wrote about Lanier and his Vioxx suit last year.
