UC ingot   Theodore H. Frank, president of the Center for Class Action Fairness and a leading tort-reform advocate, will be the lunch keynote speaker at the April 1, 2011 Corporate Law Symposium at the College of Law. The keynote address begins at 12:15 p.m..

Frank says incentives for class action attorneys to negotiate high fees for themselves at the expense of claimants have not disappeared.
