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 about the Department’s enforcement priorities and their views on recent developments in the law.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAM: A half-day Advanced Seminar on June 20th dedicated to Long-Term Disability Claims. Taught by experienced practitioners, this session will delve into the practical details for prosecuting and defending these claims.
