Gordon & Rees Austin partner Michael R. Klatt recently gave an invited lecture on “Expert Witness Depositions and Testimony” to third-year students in the University of Texas School of Law’s Advanced Civil Procedure class.
Klatt and U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Austin co-presented the lecture, held March 21 at the brand-new federal courthouse in Austin.
2013 marks the sixth year that Klatt has given the presentation at UT, where he received his undergraduate degree. In May, he will instruct Baylor University law students in the Practice Court II class on the same topic, his fifth time teaching on this subject at the Waco law school, where he earned his J.D.
Klatt is a litigator in the Drug & Medical Device and Tort & Product Liability practice groups, handling class actions, mass torts, and product liability cases. He focuses on the development of medical and scientific defenses to claims involving prescription and nonprescription pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and chemical exposures. His product liability experience also includes matters involving construction products, cosmetics, food contamination, and insecticides and pesticides.
Before attending law school, Klatt taught high school social studies.
