Special Masters CLE
A Revolution That Doesn’t Offend Anyone: The New ABA Guidelines on the Appointment and Use of Special Masters
Co-Sponsored by the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association
Tampa Bay Chapter of the Federal Bar Association
In January 2019, the American Bar Association adopted the first-ever Guidelines for the Appointment and Use of Special Masters in Federal and State Civil Litigation. These Guidelines reflect the consensus of representatives of the ABA’s Judicial Division, the Standing Committee on the American Judicial System, the National Conference of Federal Trial Judges, the National Conference of State Trial Judges, as well as the Litigation, Business Law, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property Law, Antitrust and Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Sections of the ABA on a new approach to the appointment and use of special masters designed to support (and not to supplant) trial judges and magistrate judges. This program is your chance to learn about these Guidelines, how courts across the country are considering them, what resources are available for their implementation and how they could affect civil litigation now and going forward.
The price is $45 for FBA or TBBBA members, and $50 for non-members. $5 of the fee will be donated to B.L.E.S. Judges and their law clerks are welcome to attend free of charge. Registration may be completed below.
This program has been approved for 3.0 hours of CLE credit.
