With new judgments involving pension funds often being handed down, it can be difficult to stay on top of developments – this course will give participants a practical update.

Funds are regularly involved in litigation arising from various matters. This course will focus on lessons learned from these disputes and their practical application to funds. The cases discussed will provide more insight into disputes arising in the context of fund rules, the administration of funds, and other matters of importance.
