Museum of Tort Law Presents Leaders in Law

The American Museum of Tort Law has a new program: Leaders in Law Presentation Series which will take place in the theater at the Museum, 654 Main Street, Winsted.

The first presentation is on September 27th at 7 p.m. with legendary Attorney Thomas Girardi. While Thomas Girardi has garnered many multi-million dollar verdicts, he is perhaps best known for the case against Pacific Gas & Electric Company. This case was the inspiration for the movie Erin Brockovich. As Mr. Girardi commented: “That particular case revolutionized people’s thinking about all the toxic things they are exposed to. Then all of a sudden, people started to understand it and that’s had far-reaching effects clear up through today.”

Mr. Girardi will be interviewed and then offer a Master Class in a Town Hall-style format with the opportunity for live, interactive conversation. The Museum staff would like to invite you and your friends to attend.

This presentation is the first in a series of three. The other two presentations scheduled for the Fall are: Thomas Fortune Fay, Esq, on November 8th and John Barylick, Esq. on December 6th.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.tortmuseum.org and are $20. If you have any questions please contact Joan Bowman, Director of Engagement at the Museum at joan@tortmuseum.org or call the Museum at 860-379-0505.
