This year's Symposium examines the state of modern civil litigation and, in so doing, celebrates the work of Professor Yeazell (who is retiring next year). He is the leading civil procedure scholar of his generation, having influenced countless scholars over his 35 year career. This Symposium will bring civil procedure and evidence scholars into constructive dialogue with one another and use Professor Yeazell’s work and interests as a springboard to look at critical issues in litigation as this new millennium moves forward. We plan to have panels organized around five topics: pleading; litigation finance; group litigation (class actions); judging, expertise, and evidence; and a roundtable considering the connections between evidence and civil procedure.
