Recorded on June 4, 2021. Since surgical staplers are an emerging litigation it is absolutely crucial to your firm’s success in these cases that you know the product background, and crucial client intake information to look for. The cochairs of AAJ’s newest litigation group will walk you through every step to ensure you have the best case possible filed.

AAJ is not responsible for accrediting or reporting CLE credits for On-Demand programs. Each attorney is responsible for ensuring their state accepts self-application for self-study CLE credits. FAQs on CLE and Education programs can be found HERE.
