About The Sedona Conference®
The Sedona Conference® (TSC) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) research and educational institute dedicated to the advanced study of law and policy in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights. The Sedona Conference® was founded in 1997 by Richard G. Braman, who has practiced in the areas of antitrust law, intellectual property, and complex litigation since 1978. The Sedona Conference® succeeds through the generous contributions of time by its faculties and Working Group SeriesSM members, and is able to fund its operations primarily through the financial support of its members, conference registrants, and sponsors.
The mission of The Sedona Conference® is to drive the reasoned and just advancement of law and policy by stimulating ongoing dialogue amongst leaders of the bench and bar to achieve consensus on critical issues. The Sedona Conference® brings together the brightest minds in a dialogue-based, think-tank setting with the goal of creating practical solutions and recommendations of immediate benefit to the bench and bar.
These conferences serve as incubators to identify “tipping points” in the law that may benefit from the creation of a Working Group for in-depth focus. When appropriate, a Working Group is formed as part of The Sedona Conference® Working Group SeriesSM and includes as many viewpoints and areas of expertise as possible to develop best practices, guidelines, or principles of practical and immediate benefit to the bench, bar, and all other participants in the legal system. Their findings are developed and enhanced through an extended peer review process and the resulting content is widely published in conjunction with educational programs.
