'9/11 Victims Compensation Fund: Private Pain and Public Compensation and Lessons Learned,' March 14, 2005, 6 p.m., Room 110

February 25, 2005

Kenneth R. Feinberg, the Special Master for the “9/11 Victims Compensation Fund,” is one of the leading American attorneys in the areas of complex litigation, settlement, and dispute resolution. Mr. Feinberg was appointed Special Master of the compensation fund and provided his services without a fee. He played a pivotal role in the development and promulgation of regulations governing the creation and administration of the fund, and completed in record time the complex distribution of funds to the victims of  9/11 and their families.

Mr. Feinberg has also served as Special Master or mediator in a large number of high profile cases, including the Agent Orange Product Liability Litigation, the Brooklyn Navy Yard asbestos cases and the DES pregnancy drug litigation.  He was one of three arbitrators selected to determine the fair market value of the original Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination and is one of two arbitrators selected to determine the allocation of legal fees in the Holocaust slave labor litigation.  Mr. Feinberg is the managing partner and founder of The Feinberg Group, LLP.

Mr. Feinberg’s lecture is presented by the Wendell H. Gauthier Center for Applied Trial Advocacy which was established at Tulane Law School in memory of the prominent New Orleans trial lawyer. The goal of the Center is to promote practical and scholarly contributions to the field of trial advocacy.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For information: 865-5920.
