Per the folks at Common Good: "The Boundaries of Litigation forum, co-hosted by Common Good and the Kauffman Foundation, brought together [last month at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.], as presenters and audience participants, some of the most expert and insightful leaders in law: judges, legal scholars and practitioners, policymakers and business leaders. Together they examined whether our civil justice system properly aligns with our social goals, the need for clearer boundaries in litigation, and solutions for restoring reliability to civil justice." The panels are available as webcasts here, as are many of the papers, and although I haven't had a chance to check them out yet, the stellar array of talent behind them virtually ensures that they'll contain a great deal of interest.
