Statistics are used in securities litigation analyses including the assessment of market efficiency and the estimation of damages. Lawyers are often called upon to review those analyses and write briefs supporting or opposing them, yet often have not been provided with coursework to understand the terminology used, much less the typical strengths and weaknesses of different statistical analyses. On 10 March at 3:00 pm EST, Managing Director Dr. David Tabak will join Abe Alexander of Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossman LLP to cover relevant concepts and explain what to look for in assessing statistical analyses used in litigation.
Topics will include:
- The role of statistics in securities litigation;

- Assessing strengths and weaknesses in statistical analyses used in litigation.
