Personal Injury Law and International Human Rights: Litigating Toxic Injustices
- Scott Hendler Attorney and Counselor at Law, Hendler Lyons Flores
Attorney Scott Hendler of Hendler Lyons Flores (Austin) will talk about his experience litigating the ‘DBCP’ cases, lawsuits against large American corporations on behalf of Central American agricultural workers, in particular on banana plantations, for infertility linked to the use of an insecticide. He will also talk and answer questions about his experience more generally working at the intersection of personal injury, environmental law, labor relations and international human rights, and how one can integrate work in these areas into a thriving private practice.
