A discussion on the United States civil justice system, hosted by the Law & Economics Center at the George Mason University School of Law.

Ms. Rickard's remarks focused on several key lessons for the legal reform movement. It includes a discussion of new and emerging trends in litigation, the devastating impact of lawsuit abuse on businesses and on how reformers can win over the public.

Lisa A. Rickard has served as president of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) since March 2003, providing strategic leadership to ILR’s comprehensive program aimed at changing the legal culture that has resulted in our nation’s litigation explosion. ILR’s multifaceted campaign takes the fight for legal reform to legislators, the courts, and the public by engaging in legislative advocacy, strategic communications, and voter education. Conducting seminal research to strengthen the case for reform and building strategic alliances are also cornerstones of ILR’s mission to restore fairness to our nation’s civil justice system.
