Next week in San Francisco, the American Conference Institute presents its annual Wage and Hour Litigation Conference at the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf. The main conference is October 28-29, 2008, with a Fundamentals of Wage and Hour Law workshop beforehand, on October 27. You can request a brochure in PDF at this link. The cost of the seminar is $2,195, with another $600 if you want to attend the workshop. We've attended this seminar before. The materials are good, most of the speakers are good. However, the defense lawyers speaking at ACI seminars sometimes hold back when they see plaintiff's attorneys in the crowd, and we've actually seen a speaker, at an ACI seminar concerning the defense of wage and hour class actions, respond to questions by agreeing to answer later in private, so that the information isn't heard by the plaintiff's lawyers in attendance.
