On June 24, Partner Patrick McNicholas spoke at the Berkeley Social Welfare symposium, which brought together civil justice practitioners and scholars from different disciplines to discuss gun violence, recent research, and related litigation. The event, titled “Can Litigation Be a Tool for Reducing Gun Violence?” was the second in a series of programs on gun violence sponsored by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education, the UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare, the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Berkeley Law Center for Human Rights. Pat, who serves on the Board of UC Berkeley Law’s Civil Justice Research Initiative, spoke from a litigator’s perspective, offering his thoughts on holding gun manufacturers liable for shooting-related injuries and deaths.
