Time: 3:30 - 4:30pm ET

Location: New York University School of Law


Elizabeth Haecker Ryan will moderate the panel “Ensuring That #METOO is Not You Too: Defending a #MeToo Claim, Including Practical Tips for Clients.”
The legal industry is not immune to the #MeToo movement as the country witnessed in last year’s Supreme Court hearings. This panel will discuss ways to prepare a defense of a #MeToo claim against a lawyer including how to approach a claimant as well as how to present a defense to a jury. The panel will also discuss practical ways law firms and lawyers can establish standards and policies to prevent #MeToo claims in the future but do not limit women and men from working together.
