More than 50 active members of The DRI Center for Law and Public Policy’s committees, task forces, & working groups participated in terrific brainstorming sessions on October 26 at the DRI Annual Meeting in San Antonio. As the Center’s chair, I was privileged to lead the discussions along with Center Director Jay Ludlam (pictured above). Participants included DRI CEO Dean Martinez, DRI President Lana A. Olson, Center vice chair John Guttmann, Center Legislation & Rules chair James McCrystal, Center Public Policy chair John C.S. Pierce, Center Amicus Chair Matthew Nelson, Center Advisory Council chair Philip Willman, and many other defense-side civil litigation thought leaders from around the United States and Canada. All of us are looking forward to another highly productive year for The Center’s multi-faceted activities on behalf of the 16,000-attorney DRI community.
