I was on a panel at the ALI/ABA Tenth Annual National Institute on Class Actions in San Diego, CA on Friday, October 6. I was given the task of describing the growing trend of law professors appearing as expert witnesses in class action cases. Though I have been retained as an expert on numerous occasions, I had never seen anything written describing the practice, nor analyzing its legal, ethical, and strategic components. I therefore have published the remarks I made at the conference in BNA's Expert Evidence Report (vol. 6, no. 20, Oct. 23, 2006). The gist of my remarks appear here.
