Outstanding Legal & Medical Education

Attendees can expect the very latest information on brain injury litigation at this three-day hands-on conference considered a “must attend” event for all professionals involved in brain injury litigation. The conference features an all-star cast of top trial attorneys and medical experts who will present a broad array of practical information covering the latest literature, diagnostic testing methods, rehabilitation, case management, trial techniques and cutting-edge demonstrative evidence. Attorneys will also benefit from an overview of the medical science of brain injury from an outstanding faculty of researchers and clinicians presenting the very latest in brain injury science, treatment and testing.

Bonus Medical Sessions for the Advanced Practioners

A unique feature of the conference this year, attorneys seeking more in-depth exposure to the clinical aspects of brain injury have the option to attend any of the sessions of North America’s seminal conference for medical professionals, 2022 IPBIS and NABIS Joint Conference on Brain Injury. Over 200 internationally recognized medical experts will present the latest advances in the research, rehabilitation and treatment at this concurrent event held at the same hotel. It’s like attending two brain injury conferences for the price of one!

Conference Hotel

The 34th Annual Conference on Medical & Legal Issues in Brain Injury will be held at the beautiful and iconic Wyndham New Yorker Hotel.

Built in 1929, during the height of the Jazz Age, The New Yorker, A Wyndham Hotel has dazzled visitors with its Art Deco décor, exceptional service, and superb location in Midtown West for generations. The New Yorker was at the forefront of the city’s building boom in the 1920s. At the time of its opening, it was the largest hotel in New York City, with 2,500 rooms, as well as ballrooms and private dining “salons” – not to mention the nation’s largest private power plant, installed in the hotel’s sub basements. The Big Band era of the early 1930s ushered in the first heyday of the New Yorker, as guests affected by the Great Depression visited the hotel to forget their troubles, if only for a short while. A citywide economic reawakening in 1994 led to new management and a complete refurbishment of the iconic New Yorker. Nearly 200 rooms were officially reopened later that year, and by 2000, over 1,000 elegantly renovated rooms were brought online. In addition, the hotel remodeled the famous Tick Tock Diner, making it a 24-hour eatery and confirming its place as a New York institution.
