Session Overview

The complexity of laws and jurisdictional issues affecting corporate social responsibility (CSR) is increasing. Lawyers must counsel their clients on a range of CSR topics: business and human rights, anti-corruption, ethical sourcing and  lending, privacy, and non-judicial grievance mechanisms. With the prevalence of cross-border class actions and extraterritorial jurisdiction, the importance of properly advising companies on the range of CSR issues can not be sufficiently stressed.

This CPD-accredited video with Matt Eisenbrandt and Reidar Mogerman examines the many intricate aspects of pursuing a class action involving multinational corporations, including class proceedings, evidentiary issues, different investigation methods, steps and outcomes.

Length: 60 minutes
