Approaching ERISA from a litigation perspective, this program emphasizes the practical, not the theoretical. This National Institute is designed for litigators who handle ERISA cases and want to enhance their substantive ERISA knowledge, and benefits practitioners who wish to further their knowledge of the substantive law and most recent case law. For ERISA specialists who draft plan language and render advice about plan administration, the program provides tips for minimizing litigation risk. Learn how to improve your client’s chances with pre-litigation strategies, including plan design features and plan administrative practices. Learn tips, techniques and advice from successful, experienced plaintiff and defense ERISA litigators. In addition, you will hear from key players at the Department of Labor (Phyllis Borzi and Tim Hauser) about the Department’s enforcement priorities and their views on recent developments in the law.
