TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Institute, producers of the popular Class Actions Litigation Forum, unveils its newest addition to the class action series, Class Actions Litigation Bootcamp.

From pre-claim process to and beyond the certification stage, learn strategies to manage the challenges inherent in class claims.

Invaluable training will be provided in a number of different areas, including sessions on:

  • Evaluating evidentiary indicators for claim viability on the facts and on the law: What constitutes a common issue?
  • Weighing considerations in choosing an appropriate representative plaintiff
  • Working through a solid precedent motion record for guidance on compiling the best possible documentation, with a focus on the supplementary materials
