The Reed Smith life sciences product liability and 3D printing teams will be hosting an upcoming CLE webinar "3D Printing: What Could Happen to Products Liability When Users (and Everyone Else in Between) Become Manufacturers" on May 8, 2017 at 12 p.m. ET. Reed Smith presenters Jim Beck and Matt Jacobson will be discussing 3D printing's potential impact on product liability laws as the technology becomes faster, cheaper, and more widespread.

Webinar attendees will learn about possible alternative theories that plaintiffs may advance when someone is injured as a result of a design or manufacturing defect in a 3D printed product. Particular attention will be given to the impact of 3D printing on FDA-regulated prescription medical products. Finally, attendees will hear an examination of various strategies that companies or potential product liability defendants – traditional and non-traditional – might use, prior to litigation, to minimize their possible exposure and mitigate the risk of liability.

This webinar is also approved for 1 hour of general CLE credit in CA, IL, NJ, PA, TX and WV. To register for the free webinar, please click here.
