September 20, 2018. Mr. Hartley was invited to offer his views on the unique issues presented at depositions in class action cases, in a program called “Taking Class Action Depositions the Right Way”. The Conference is open to all lawyers and takes place on October 26-27, 2018 at the W Chicago City Center Hotel. The syllabus explains, “just as deep dish differs from thin crust, class action depositions differ from depositions taken in traditional bilateral litigation. Special themes and goals apply that counsel too often overlook or don’t appreciate.  This hands-on practicum will propose an architecture for class action depositions that Daniel Burnham would envy.  By preparing early and often, you’ll become the best deposition taker in your firm.”
