Description

An uncommonly good idea or not?

The Department of Business Law and Taxation and Corporate Law, Organisation and Litigation Research Group at Monash Business School invite you to a webinar on class actions and their funding models.

Class action common funds involve court orders that the entire class of claimants must meet the fees and commission of a third party litigation funder. This applies whether the litigants have entered a funding agreement with the funder or not.

Is this a good idea to prevent 'free riders' benefitting from someone else funding their litigation, or a bad idea to allow funders access to a share of claimants' damages without consent?

Speaker

Michael Duffy
