On Thursday, September 30, 2021, BLB&G Partner Abe Alexander and Northeastern University Provost & Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs David Madigan (formerly Chair of Statistics at Columbia University) will present a webinar on "Biostatistics for Lawyers." 

The course will provide a broad overview of key topics in biostatistics that are frequently at the forefront of litigation involving drugs and medical devices, including a review of basic concepts including relative risks, odds ratios, statistical significance and power, comparing proportions, survival analysis, Bayesian analysis, metanalysis, and common issues in trial clinical conduct. The course will also touch on how these concepts figure into judicial opinions. Participants will learn to identify common red flags and pit falls in statistical analysis, develop tools to more effectively conduct discovery and interface with experts, and develop a sense for how courts view and understand these issues.
