Professor Michael Moffitt to present at Oregon Trial Lawyers Association luncheon
Oregon Law Professor and Dean-Designate Michael Moffitt will present to the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association during a luncheon in Portland on Wednesday, April 27. Moffitt will speak to the psychology and economics of settlement.
“In an age in which such a large percentage of cases are resolved without jury trial, it is important for litigators to be skilled at both trial and at settlement,” Moffitt said about the topic of his presentation. “I look forward to talking with the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association about the intersection of their own practices with the lessons from modern research on settlement dynamics.”
Professor Moffitt is the law school’s associate dean for academic affairs, associate director for the Appropriate Dispute Resolution Center, and Orlando J. and Marian H. Hollis Professor of Law. He will start his tenure as dean on July 1, 2011.
The Oregon Trial Lawyers Association is an organization of 900 attorneys and 300 other professionals who represent individuals and businesses in civil court. The organization promotes juries and jury service, and the civil justice rights of all Oregonians.
