About the Rabiej Litigation Law Center

The Center holds three annual invitation-only bench-bar conferences at various locations and law schools around the country. The conferences provide a forum for deep dives into timely issues, which pose seemingly intractable procedural difficulties for the bench and bar, that result in unfairness and inefficiency, wasting time and money. Following the conferences, volunteer teams of judges, lawyers, and other experts are formed to develop solutions to the problems identified at the conferences.

The Center’s conferences play a unique role in providing a forum for the bench and bar to share and understand their respective experiences, insights, and concerns as a first step in developing solutions with as much consensus as possible to improve the administration of justice.
