The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast Utilizing Statistical Sampling to Prove Causation in Class Action Litigation: Practical Tips and Strategies

Event Synopsis:

In recent years, the use of statistical sampling to prove causation in a class action litigation has become a recurring issue. With the proliferation of class action lawsuits, courts are conceiving the idea of having advanced inference techniques on causation to test class claims while upholding the defendant’s rights. They have stressed that the causal factors on causation are individual and class-wide determination of general causation doesn’t succor the burden of showing individualized proof of specific causation.

A recurring need for this arises in class action disputes in which the court needs to evaluate the alleged conducts among class members. Statistics are accepted ways of providing representative evidence in this situation. Disabling the use of statistical evidence in litigation could have wide implications in various legal contexts.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the use of Statistical Sampling to Prove Causation in Class Action Litigation. Speakers will also present tips as well as strategies in utilizing statistical evidence while avoiding possible risks and pitfalls.

• Statistical Sampling and Causation
• The Use of Statistical Sampling to Prove Causation
• Implications to Legal Contexts
