Andre Mura To Moderate Discussion at 2017 Pound Civil Justice Forum

Gibbs Law Group attorney Andre Mura will serve as a moderator for the upcoming 2016 Pound Civil Justice Institute’s Judges Forum on Saturday, July 22, 2017. This year’s Forum topic is “Jurisdiction: Defining State Courts’ Authority.” Held annually since 1992, the Pound Judges Forum is a full–day educational program for State Appellate Court Judges, providing a direct, intensive substantive experience, with original research written by prominent academics, commentary by experts from both sides of the bar, and small group discussions. The consumer bar’s most significant outreach to the judiciary, the Judges Forum provides an opportunity for judges, legal scholars, and practicing attorneys to come together for an open dialogue about major issues affecting civil justice in America.

Andre was recently selected by Law360 as a Rising Star in cybersecurity and privacy, the only plaintiff-side attorney in the country to receive that honor. He focuses his practice on consumers’ and workers’ rights, products liability, drug and medical devices, federal jurisdiction, and constitutional law. Together with Gibbs Law Group partner David Stein, Andre co-authors Consumer Law Watch, a blog monitoring, exploring, and analyzing the importance of consumer trends in class action nationwide.
