After this remarkable program debuted in 2020, PLI received countless, enthusiastic requests for a follow-up.  Thus, we are excited to bring back the incredible team of John Trentacosta, Waqas Shahid, and Program Chair Vanessa Miller to present this unique class on legal practice in the manufacturing field amid widespread supply chain disruptions.

In 2021, manufacturing supply and distribution chains continue to be disrupted on a global scale affecting trade, retail operation, and product supplies even at local levels.  Yet, since the onset of COVID-19, ongoing tariff wars, and now massive changes in the U.S.’s federal administration, we can draw upon lessons learned in the past year to advise clients on what lies ahead for Supply Chain Agreements in a still unpredictable economy.
