What is MDL?

Until they receive a notice that they have a case that has been transferred to a "MDL," even most lawyers have never heard of multidistrict litigation. So, if you're a lawyer or one of the many plaintiffs with a case that has been centralized through the MDL process, there's a lot to learn.


Through the American Law Institute's podcast, Reasonably Speaking, I had the opportunity to interview Yale Law and Yale Medical School Professor Abbe Gluck, defense attorney John Beisner of Skadden Arps, and plaintiff's attorney Shanin Specter of Kline & Specter.


We explore the basics of MDL as well as today's hot topics and current events: opioids, appeals, pelvic mesh, common benefit fees, and everything in between. We'd love for you to tune in! You can listen on Spotify, Apple, Google, Soundcloud, Stitcher, and Tunein here. That link will also take you to a wealth of free resources on those topics.
