Agenda

Choose Your Path. Attend Any Session at Any Time.

The MTMP multi-track agenda allows for sessions to run concurrently, and attendees are able to move easily from one track to another. This format allows attendees to maximize their ability to choose the sessions that are of most importance to their practice. Here is a description of the various tracks:

Mass Tort Projects

In these sessions, you will hear directly from the lawyers on the front lines of the largest and most pressing current hot mass tort projects. Gain insights on where the project is headed and how you can avoid being left behind. You can’t get this kind of content anywhere but at MTMP.

Business of Law

The Business of Law Track is an opportunity to hear from leaders in the legal industry as they share their insights as to what is new and trending. This is the part of MTMP where you can find out what you can do to really grow your practice.​

PARALEGAL SKILLS

MTMP has been delivering incredible content for lawyers for over 20 years – and we have recently added a track to teach your paralegals the skills they need to become an invaluable part of your team. We offer practical sessions addressing issues that paralegals deal with every day, including communication, drafting complaints, plaintiff fact sheets, and so much more. This is a great chance for paralegals to also connect with paralegals from around the country and share insights and best practices.
