Contemp Prob in Complex Lit

This course will focus on selected problems in contemporary complex litigation. Using materials from articles, recent and current cases, as well as a leading casebook, the instructors will lead discussion of such topics as the nature of complex litigation and the roles of the parties, counsel, and the judiciary in resolving societal problems, how counsel develops a theory of the case, aggregation techniques, issue preclusion and the need for finality, class actions, consolidation of cases, coordination of judgments across different judicial systems, and methods of resolution. We also expect that we will discuss the use of dispositive motions, expert testimony, document production, and witness preparation.
