Thursday, September 26, 2019: The Opioid Epidemic (Co-sponsored by the Center on Civil Justice at NYU Law and NYU Journal of Law & Business)
Lipton Hall (108 West Third Street), 10:00am – 4:00pm

The United States is currently struggling with one of its worst-ever drug crises. Every week, over nine hundred people die from opioid-related overdoses. Moreover, millions of Americans suffer from opioid addictions. Besides the risks it poses to public health, the crisis constitutes a threat to national security and a drag on the economy. Substantial evidence suggests that opioid marketing largely contributed to the crisis.

We are pleased to present a conference on “the Opioid Epidemic,” co-hosted by the Classical Liberal Institute at NYU Law, the Center on Civil Justice at NYU Law, and the NYU Journal of Law & Business. This conference, featuring two panels and a keynote speech, will focus on litigation surrounding the opioid epidemic as well as regulation and reform issues related to the crisis. Panelists will discuss the lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies, different defense strategies and the most effective way to structure settlement agreements, the strengths and weaknesses of current regulation, and different reform options in order to effectively address this major health and social crisis. The keynote speech will be delivered by the Honorable Diane Wood (Chief United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit).
