Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin has been appointed to the Next Generation Advisory Board for Emory University Law School’s new Institute for Complex Litigation and Mass Claims. The Board will include twelve “next generation” lawyers from both the plaintiffs and defense side who have been recognized as leaders in the field of complex litigation.
Ms. Martin joins lawyers from Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, King & Spalding, Keller Rhorback, Janet Jenner & Suggs, Weitz & Luxenberg, O’Melveny & Myers, William & Connolly, McGuire Woods, and Barrios Kingsdorf & Casteix.
Established in 1916, Emory University Law School has created the Institute for Complex Litigation and Mass Claims. The institute will provide a forum for advancing dialogue about complex litigation strategies, challenges, and evolution. In addition, it will offer advanced training for the complex litigation bar at all levels of practice, as well as host judicial seminars, bar conferences, academic programs, and research.
The Institute’s Next Generation Board will develop a series of training events to promote the next generation of leaders within the complex litigation bar. Members of the board bring their expertise to help progress the leadership in complex litigation, particularly when it comes to ethnic, gender, and other forms of diversity within the bench and bar.
