DRI’s Drug and Medical Device Committee will hold its annual Seminar on May 3-5, 2023, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The Seminar is a preeminent program for practitioners who represent pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. The Seminar will feature a number of nationally recognized attorneys, both in-house and outside counsel, and other professionals, who will address cutting-edge topics that are relevant to all who practice in this area, whether they are associates, lead trial counsel, or in-house counsel.

This year’s program will offer a mixture of presentations, such as trial skills demonstrations, panel discussions and individual presentations from leaders in their practice areas, as well as a Young Lawyers Blockbuster. In addition to the outstanding program, there will be numerous networking opportunities, including a reception aboard the Creole Queen, small group networking/sightseeing tours and exploring New Orleans during Jazz Fest!
Seminar speakers will address key topics such as the latest developments in Rule 702, translating FDA approval into a jury-friendly defense, best practices for managing former employees, improv skills for lawyers, and changes in juror perceptions post-COVID. Those who attend may earn up to 9 hours of CLE, including 1.0 hours of ethics.
